COVENT GARDEN ROOF TERRACE BOOK FEATURE.
The Covent Garden roof terrace is featured in a new book written by Victoria Summerley, photographed by Marianne Majerus and published by Frances Lincoln. The 120sqm space enjoys a 360 degree panorama of London with views of the Shard, The London Eye, Nelsonís Column and BT Tower. The long and narrow space was divided it into 3 areas. A lower dining area with light tiles leads to a raised hardwood deck which features a lounge and an outdoor kitchen. A further lower area is covered with artificial grass and sunloungers. The hot, sunny aspect features Mediterranean flora such as Lavenders, palm trees, Olive, herbs, Oleander and Spurge. Remote control lighting, automatic irrigation and a speaker system add to the very social space, which is low maintenance and provides an evergreen, all-year round setting.
