BBC Roof Garden in Belfast

BBC Roof Garden-860x614

This roof provided access to a plant room and performed no other use. It was transformed into an interesting roofscape with the use of hard and soft landscaping. It was described as “A walk in the park”, in the design brochure. Access is via a corridor door and a trellised walkway. The involvement of landscape architects Park Hood ensured that all those features usually found in a garden were incorporated into the design.

Apart from providing a staff relaxation area , the roof garden is now used in the production of television programmes , providing a setting for interviews with views of Belfast in the background. The dark blue glazing to the plant room provides a stunning backdrop to the water feature and the colours of the many plants.
