Project report

In the middle of historical Kiev the newest apartment complex with a private rooftop garden was built. The roof of the one of the highest buildings in the city centre is situated on the 32nd floor of the Royal Tower residential building and seems to be a private park between the clouds. The idea of the landscape architect was to add a new layer as an unusual alternative to a missing local area around the building. The space was planned for outdoor recreation in the warm season and, of course, a panoramic area with incredible views over the central part of Kiev. Free access to this fabulous place is only open to residents of the complex and their guests. When the garden and green spaces around the private restaurant for the residents was planned, plant selection was carefully considered for seasonal colour variation.

  • Roof garden with lawn, perennials, shrubs and small trees
    Outdoor recreation is possible within the city on the 32nd floor.
  • Roof garden with tall pine tree
    The garden centrepiece, a pine over 7 m tall and weighing 5 t.
