Eyecatchers: Up On The Roof

Kind of a funny Eyecatchers installment today, via Inhabitat.

While I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE most of the design of this rooftop space, I’m not so sure about this bit:

If you’re a parent raising kids in a city, you are likely to turn green with envy over this private rooftop park and playground built on top of a turn-of-the-century buildingin the Nørrebro neighborhood of Copenhagen.

The parent in me sees the little kid in the photos, chasing the ball on that “shock absorbing” orange playground space, and that, what, 3-4ft. fence, and rather than envy I feel dread fear.

Of course, a designer might say that a higher fence line would detract from the design, but why the chain link? What if the fence was taller but utilized clear plastic panels?

  1. I like the whole concept of utilizing roof tops. can you imagine a city where EVERY building had a roof top covered in plants, gardens, greenery of some sort? maybe a solar panel or to, rain catching systems? it really seems all so easy…This park looks fun but definitely would need a taller fence.
