Prati, Rome

a c b d e

A well-known Italian designer worked on this terrace in Rome’s northern suburbs some years ago. Remaining from that makeover were a series of zinc planters, wonderfully deformed over the years until they seem almost organic. Our latest intervention strove to integrate planting with the existing colour scheme and provide some privacy, while screening the view over some ugly buildings nearby.
