Love that green contrast against the red tiled roof tops.

I admire that garden on top of the building. Maximizing the space.

I love finding these rooftop gardens. I once took an organized walk in San Francisco to see many hidden gardens that were on rooftops.

Creative way to get a garden, and also with a view.
Must cost quite a lot to buy a place like this, I guess.

Interessante grama em terraço de prédios altos na cidade. Talvez a idéia de levar um pouco de vida para a concretude.

City heaven?

Aha, another reason why I love your blogs! What a wonderful shot. Crisp, tack-sharp, colors perfect and lots and lots of interest. What a place for a garden. But, hey, whatever works. I'll bet there's a nice breeze up there, too and that it's a great place to enjoy a beer or glass of wine...

A sea view from the lawn... fantastic.

Hmm, I wonder if that's real grass or fake?

JM said...

@Jenny: It's real.

Is it a restaurant?
I wish every building had a top like this. Cities would be beautiful, wouldn't they?
