With spring here and summer fast approaching, our residents appreciate having an outdoor space where they can relax, meet their neighbours, and enjoy the natural environment. 

Our buildings do not disappoint when it comes to rooftops and gardens with a wow factor. Join us as we explore five of our favourite community rooftop areas across Greystar Europe below:



1.  OurDomain Rotterdam Blaak

Nominated for Roof of the Year by the Dutch trade magazine Roofs, the rooftop space at OurDomain in Rotterdam is an impressive 6,400 sq ft, boasting comfortable hangout spots and panoramic views across the city. 

Located in the city centre close to the Nieuwe Maas river, this is the perfect place to enjoy a sunny day, 24 storeys up from the hustle and bustle of the Netherlands’ second biggest city.

2.  Bloom Nine Elms

Divided into two buildings in Southwest London, residents at Bloom benefit from breathtaking views across the capital at both Bloom East and Bloom West. 

With swimming pools, a greenhouse, gardens, lounges, a BBQ area, and a sky bar, we can imagine just how popular the rooftops are in the warmer months. 

Courtyard-style rooftop with a pool, surrounded by modern apartment buildings, featuring seating and dining areas.

3.  Be Casa San Sebastian

Taking advantage of the Spanish sunshine, our communities at Be Casa have some fantastic outdoor spaces. The rooftop social area of Be Casa San Sebastian is one of our favourites; just picture the scene. 

The sun is setting on a hot summer evening. Fairy lights illuminate the rooftop as friends sit around enjoying drinks and taking in breathtaking views across Madrid. Heavenly right?

Chic rooftop patio with a bar, shaded seating areas, and string lights against an evening sky.

4.  District Living Vienna

Residents are spoiled for choice when looking for a place to relax outdoors at District Living in Vienna. The roof terrace and the sky lounge on the 33rd floor provide unmatched views of the city and the Danube River while the ‘Secret Garden’ offers a zen space to unwind surrounded by greenery. And all are just minutes away from District Coffee, located in the lobby, our first Greystar-managed coffee shop!
