Rooftop lawns create large outdoor recreation spaces at high levels — while blocking views to the neighboring houses.

Vegetation edging these green roof lawns also helps to create privacy from the smaller surrounding single-story homes.

A key feature is a vast stairway in glass, creating the sense of a very open glass house, seen here across a courtyard from atop the first floor green roof.

This stairway-cum-art gallery is enclosed in an astonishing three stories of glass.

All the rooftop lawns provide outdoor green views and a sense of connection to nature that supersede the view of neighboring houses that would otherwise dominate sight lines.

The staggered rooftop lawns and pool create the sense of ground level – but it is a ground level suspended above the neighbors.

Only one neighbor’s house can be seen in the distance far below.

Even from this highest point, privacy isn’t compromised nearly as much as you might expect, because these all-glass walls only border the walkway – art gallery.

An astonishing and elegant solution from Guz Architects.
