If you’re living in a very tall building with few green places and is looking for a patio design that will bring a realistic and natural element into your outdoor living space together with the garden seating area, try out the White Canvas on a Green Roof by Martine Brisson. Why the name? It began with the objective of the home itself. The home is built atop of a building but it hosts a very relaxing and bright patio. This patio is designed to have a lot of greeneries, making it seem like a ground level garden actually exist on the rooftop. On this area where life wouldn’t actually grow, a beautiful man-made garden stands proud; thus, the home’s name. The brightness, simple design, and the spaciousness of the patio give a lot of space for circulation.
There are two outdoor patios built for this home. The special things about these two small patio designs are that they are designed to resemble a ground level front yard, backyard, or a garden seating area. It is a perfect feature designed on a house that does not even have the opportunity to own these outdoor spaces as it provides the homeowner with the illusions of these spaces.
The first patio is located beside the black box structure of the home’s top floor. The room, which consists of a large open floored area with a descending spiral stair, is built with floor to ceiling windows which when opened, connects the interior with the patio. Both the interior and patio is built with the same wood material. So, an outdoor and indoor connection is made. The patio holds a garden corner seat and an outdoor lounge with a foldable shed.
The second patio holds a more cheerful and active function. Here, a large garden canopy with an open ceiling is built. White draperies makes up for shed and wall replacement, and wall plants crisscrossed on square wire stretches on the canopy’s roof. This small porch design is built beside the grass yard and holds a garden seating area, outdoor grilling area, reclining lounge area, and outdoor dining space.
