The Ismaili Centre Roof Garden
The GardenThis beautiful roof garden is a sanctuary of calm, set against the backdrop of a bustling city. It reflects motifs from Islamic architectural heritage in its serene setting and also draws on the traditions of Muslim civilisations that have inspired outstanding buildings around the globe for hundreds of years. The chahar-bagh (four-part garden), delineated by a central fountain, draws inspiration from the Qur’anic imagery of the Garden of Paradise. It combines granite and greenery with geometry, symbolism and the sound and flow of water in a sheltered yet open garden.
