Before & After: A Sake Maker’s Tokyo Rooftop

As part of Minus Six Degrees, Japan’s nationwide movement to reduce CO2 emissions,  Sake brewer Toshimaya made over their 1970’s drab sterile building to be more carbon and earthquake friendly.

The effort, which included this rooftop garden,  has paid off, with staff  inspired to do more to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and think about environmental issues like how the company uses water and rice.

The Japanese styled garden now provides a place for employees and visitors to relax.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
