City Roof Terrace
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Because of its tensioned and curved structure, the roof requires minimal contact with exterior walls and no internal supports, as can be seen in this awning that shades a rooftop terrace. The hyperbolic roof is ideal for homeowners who want an open, light and economic building.
Maximise your patio day and nightGood lighting is imperative in a garden seating area, as this is where friends and family will congregate as day turns into night. Directional spots create a bright and focused stream of light, so you can make the most of a warm summer evening, even when darkness falls.
Be dramatic with lightingThis contained seating pod has the feel of a cosy restaurant booth or snug sitting room thanks to the tall surrounding walls, overhead canopy and the arrangement of the furniture. Perfect for creating a cosy outdoor living space that can be enjoyed in all weathers, this design has added drama thanks to the targeted spotlighting which adds a wash of light, and allows the space to be used after nightfall. You could create a similar effect by adding a canopy and light source to your existing outdoor space, effectively creating a ‘snug’ area.
