A roof covered by greenery is not a part of the regular thing that we can come across often. The sky garden or rooftop garden is generally done by using aeroponics, hydroponics or container gardens. This kind of architecture not only enhances the view of the house but also proves to be sustainable and healthy. Witness some beautiful sky garden architecture at the architecture designs.
Let’s start with the attractive and luxurious sky garden house, the famous Meera sky garden house in Singapore. This sky garden house is designed to have cross ventilation and to have the most out of natural air rather than using artificial air conditioning. The garden on each level is specially designed so that it provides shade to the bottom level and enough heat to the immediate lower level.
In addition to influencing the life of the owner or the resident of the house, the sky garden also helps in reducing the energy consumption assisting in sustainable development and enhancing the quality of life by diffusing natural light and giving a healthy atmosphere to live with a balanced view of greenery, sky, and ocean.
With the stylish architecture and slanting design, the sky garden proves to be helpful as the slanting design will provide for water retention as well as the removal of excess water in case of heavy rainfall. This architecture provides natural cooling as the grass on the top of the house will absorb lesser heat which helps in reducing thermal storage and artificial cooling materials.
Another way to add some glamour to the sky garden is going with adding a touch of cabin charm. Adding a cabin charm will help in covering the rooftop along with the minimal damage to the surroundings with sustainable greenery. This cabin structure will make the house disappear by mixing with the surroundings and keeping the bioclimatic house adaptable to all climates and adapt to the natural conditions.
You can also make the sky garden an affordable and easy to maintain option by going with a minimalist structure. All it needs is a timber set-up paired with the metal sheet to make it sustainable in addition to making it elegant and fashionable. This type of architecture is best suited for the beach-side place for exotic ocean views and peaceful surrounding promising the delightful living.
The penthouse is the best way to go for the sky garden with a sleek view. This architectural penthouse Eco-park combines the gardens with the industrial-style architecture. The terrace garden is the utmost luxury with all the glamorous outdoor lounge and Jacuzzi. This architecture also features the beautiful poolside seating area open to the sunlight that is connected to the master bedroom that allows the owner to get ultimate relaxation.
Not only the concept of the greenhouse is taking the pace but this concept is also becoming the focal point of major buildings. Los Angeles Museum of Holocaust is one of the best examples of the sky garden. The museum is submerged into the ground in order to keep the garden and greenery intact and is constructed in such a way that complements the flow of the park allowing the natural flow intact. The distinct façade is enough to maintain the landscape of the park intact.
Do you think you can’t be modern if you choose to have natural architecture? You may have to look at the beauty of the Black Beauty Tierra Villa in Ostional, Costa Rica. This villa is ultra-luxurious and is green in every way. The three-bedroom villa has everything with a peaceful place at the roof-top to the swimming pool to the ultimate greenery of the place covered in a natural forest.
It is not always important to have the sky garden all filling the space of the house or the other places when you can also go for building the raised beds. This is spacious, clean and green. Adding raised beds from any material to be it wood, metal or concrete makes the place stand out and add to the concept of sky garden or green rooftop.
