Summary Having personal, private, outdoor space is becoming ever-more elusive as urban areas become more crowded due to population growth and development. Urban Oasis: Finding Tranquility at Home features projects from Sydney to Singapore and London to New York that showcase inspirational and aspirational rooftops, gardens and courtyards that offer private pockets of paradise. Amid the hustle and bustle of their urban environments, these outdoor spaces provide relaxing, sociable and plant-filled settings for their owners to savor peace and calm, and the company of family and friends, surrounded by nature and in the fresh, open air.
