Lower Highlands (LoHi) Roof Garden and Streetscape

Denver, Colorado

Design Development

At LoHI we developed ideas for a roofscape garden open to the sky and urban Front Range views. The intent was to create the potential for residences to appropriate and modify the roofscape as they see fit, creating an individual sense of place every time, for each resident.

Simplicity & Flexibility 
The design emphasizes simplicity and flexibility; openness towards change throughout the day and seasons; not prescribed conditions and experiences. 

The roofscape is a raised Trex platform, a weave of blended colors. A grid of light poles defines the space. Canvas sails slung between poles provides shade where needed. An array of lighted acrylic cubes act like campfires at night blanketing the space in ambiance.
