Rooftop Gardens Part 2/2

I’d Move In

The pictures of this house really do speak for themselves but because the search engines don’t read photos the way humans do, I’ll describe.  


I'm in love with this fantastic house because it has a garden on the roof of the first floor.  If I am interpreting these photos correctly, one could actually walk out of a door on the second floor and onto the garden.   


If that isn’t cool enough for you, there is a climbing wall instead of a ladder to access a loft area.  All we need now is a larger version so that I could enjoy it rather than it simply being for kids.   

Get Down From There Billy, It's Daddy's Turn!

This place has nice things like hard wood floors and according to the architects it's built using sustainable materials.

Since I tend to think about how I could do that myself when I see impressive looking things, my first thought when I saw this place was "I wonder if I could build that using stacked shipping containers?"  I’m fairly certain that if I tried, I would fail in a massive way.  In fact, I think I would be lucky if the property wasn’t declared a Super Fund clean up site. 

I suppose what I should be thinking when I see a place like this is how can I earn enough money from the Clean Sheets and Dirty Girls blog to afford to hire the people at Feldman Architecture to build one of these for me.

Here is a link to an article that lists more details about the property.

  8. Pretty cool house. Not too crazy about having to climb the wall, though. I hope there's some kind of alternate route...like an elevator I can take a nap in.

  10. Despite previous arguments with previous girlfriends, I still maintain that a shark pool is a highly functional piece of home architecture.

  12. Okay, THAT is the kinda home you freakin' want! I always like unconventional architecture and design, and this?

    This is fuckin' killer.

    I agree with A Beer For The Shower though, shark pool. Also a death laser.

    Which I will only use on Bonds only after I've shot them with a gun that I myself loaded and the moment they're brought before me by my actually respectably skilled and loyal henchmen.

    'cuz I'm the Bond villain that didn't get the fucking memo.

  13. These are just awesome. Dont get me wrong, whenever I go to IKEA I feel like becoming an designer there. The ideas, the elegance and creativity. Look at that mountain climbing wall instead of ladder.

  22. I am sure I will make enough money with my blog to by one of these places. Or maybe a million times what I am making. Oh wait... 1,000,000 x 0 = 0. Well, scratch that plan...

    1. ...whoops I mean "BUY one of these places." Though the garden on the roof seems kinda dangerous. You might forget where you are and...SPLAT.

  23. pretty creative. I would love to climb a wall into a secret room or something in a house. kid's dream!

  24. That roof garden in the first picture is EXQUISITE!!! :O It’s totally unique. The green roof, though not that huge and extravagant, has that exceptional concept/appearance that makes it stand out among all the usual roofs. If this amazing top is given proper/regular maintenance, that house is going to stay good-looking and secured at all times.
