French Riviera, Summer 2015
Our brief was to transform an existing flat roof space into a practical yet beautiful rooftop terrace to be used for relaxation and entertaining during the summer.
To ensure the roof space would be practical, we used a low maintenance, composite decking in a light grey tone to keep the floor cool in the heat of the summer sun. The glass balustrade at the front of the terrace provides panoramic views over the Riviera coastline whilst the opaque balustrades provide privacy from neighbouring properties.
The two large sphere sculptures are inspired by nature and provide focal points on the roof terrace. The sculptures have integral lighting so come to life at night and cast the most beautiful shadows over the decking.
Decorative lantern lights subtly light the terrace bringing a sense of warmth. The contemporary furniture is multi-functional and the Client wanted the rooftop furniture to differ to the exterior furniture elsewhere in the property so we opted for a contemporary white Mediterranean concept for the roof.
