We love the new trend of "greening" one's roof by replacing shingles and tar with vegetation. Think of how much extra space has been added to this building in the Embarcadero, just by utilizing the roof? http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/look-rooftop-garden-63986#
Allie's rooftop garden. I've often wanted to put more description into Allie's rooftop retreat, but thus far, I've not found the right moment to do so. This a lot like I've imagined. The designer in me wants to push it further into a luxurious space, but Allie's parents aren't extremely wealthy and Allie herself isn't outlandish in taste. I think space this would suit her artistic personality very well.
