KNOW MORE ABOUT THE DESIGNERS:
MYTO design d’espaces vivants is proud to announce a new landscape design, which won an award at the Grands Prix du Design 2020 in the Residential Patio and Landscaping category. Designer Martine Brisson and landscape architect Roxanne Miller worked for more than a year to create a green rooftop with custom planters atop a home in Westmount. The sprawling 1965 square foot space is dedicated to relaxation. It boasts a spectacular view and seamless integration with the surrounding landscape.
After renovating the house in 2016, the owner of the luxury property wanted to make the most of the flat roof by turning it into a deck. He engaged MYTO design d’espaces vivants, whose specialties include green rooftops. The mandate was to create a space focused on wellness. It was to be suitable for entertaining and would showcase a breathtaking view of the city and surrounding areas.
True to their brand, the two women decided to create a contemporary, visually striking, and streamlined outdoor space bordered with colorful, somewhat unruly vegetation. The decking is made of ipe wood, a species known for its toughness, high density, and beautiful color. To ensure safe enjoyment of the view and vegetation, a transparent glass parapet encloses the entire perimeter.
