Barely visible from the street, this new rooftop addition has created a new open living and kitchen space, opening out to the rooftop courtyard and garden areas. Many challenges were overcome, including working on top of an old, existing structure, as well as the logistical headaches of working on a main road, however the final result is an enchanting rooftop garden oasis.
