The purpose of this meeting is to gain a comprehensive understanding of your desired project. Based on this consultation, we'll be able to estimate the time required to plan and carry out the project, and provide you with an overview of the costs involved.
A garden for your penthouse. 7th Heaven - Montreal, Griffintown.
Boasting an impressive view of downtown Montreal, this large rooftop terrace offers multiple outdoor living spaces in which to relax. The materials chosen are well suited to the constraints of this environment, such as the porcelain slabs that replace the concrete ones, the shallow-rooted plants and the synthetic lawn carpet.
Living on the roof
Life is sweet and simple on this roof, but getting there wasn’t so easy. This project presented several challenges. First and foremost, Board approval is a crucial step. Once the design stages have been finalized, it is necessary to obtain the necessary permits to occupy the public highway before starting work. On the management side, we had to coordinate all the teams (carpentry, construction, planting and lighting). In addition, it’s important to plan the transportation of materials. In this case, we had to use the elevator and fire escape. For the project itself, the challenges were to create a private, out-of-sight area for entertaining friends and family, and to add points of shade. We also had to take account of wind corridors when anchoring the structures, and find water management solutions for the planting areas.
Quality materials for a straightforward quality of life. It was with this in mind that we approached the project. To make the design as spectacular and unique as the view it offers of the city center, we opted for quality materials suited to our climate, such as porcelain, a bioclimatic pergola and aluminum tubs. What’s more, the plants chosen, combined with the light color of the porcelain, help to temper this magnificent roof terrace during periods of intense heat.
