The design solution for the roof terrace on an award winning development, was to create a zoned ground pattern with the use of two materials. A seating and relaxing area was laid with a cream sandstone to match in size and colour with the internal tiles, these were laid on pedestals as a floating floor. The dynamic spaces were resurfaced in dark Ipe hardwood to create a dramatic contrast. The new layout was furnished with an external sofa and arm chairs with planting restricted to Box balls in tall limestone effect planters; the main focal point being a clipped cloud tree in a matching container.
Ilex crenata act as the focal point in this minimalist scheme
Light weight composite pots appear to be limestone.
Diamond cut sandstone paving laid on adjustable plastic pedestals by Buzon, maintain drainage to the roof membrane.
