Skyhigh House

A ‘garden in the sky’ concept was realized to look and feel like a ground-based landscape.

A dry creek feature runs through the middle of the rooftop landscape.

An outdoor balcony allows the occupants to relax and dine adjacent to the rooftop garden.

Rainwater is harvested from the metal roofs and is stored in a converted pool-to-cistern.
