Rooftop Playground

Many urban families have only small, overcrowded rubber-floored playgrounds available for their kids to frolic in. So, JDS Architects devised a respite for a few families above-ground. They were hired to create a little getaway garden playground on the rooftops of three adjoining penthouses in Copenhagen. The communal garden includes a suspension bridge, a shock-absorbing play surface, a lookout viewing platform, outdoor kitchen and barbecue, and even a grassy knoll.
