Amazing Roofing Collection: Part One.

This is a collection of some of the most interesting and inspiring roofs form around the world. We collected so many we are splitting this blog into two! Here’s round one:Image

Roof garden: We have a lot of fun “green roofs” on this post, but this one is the only delightful country garden.

Image

Farming: An urban roof farm in Brooklyn, New York.

Recycled: This roof is made entirely from used tires. We wonder, does it smell like burning rubber when the sun is blaring?

Image

Decorative: The roof at the Grand Palace makes quite the colorful statement!

Image

Clay: This clay roof touches both the sky and the grass.

Image

Whimsical: Looks like it was pulled right from the pages of a fairytale book!

Image

Roof-pool: We see roof pools a lot in the city, but this one takes the concept to whole new level. So very beautiful and serene.

Desert: Not all roof gardens are perfectly lush and manicured. This “green roof” blends perfectly with it’s natural desert surroundings.

Siding: When roofing becomes siding…

Urban garden: Top of City Hall in Chicago, Illinois.
