Garden Design Concept

Constructed of common materials and sustainably planted, the Foothill College rooftop garden is designed with modular pieces that will fit even the smallest spaces. As practical as it is beautiful, it invites you to rediscover a forgotten province of your home. A room above the hustle and bustle, beyond the ordinary. A space beyond and above.
