The Ismaili Centre Roof Garden sits in a serene setting, with the garden reflecting motifs from Islamic architectural heritage. It also draws on the traditions of Muslim civilisations that have inspired outstanding buildings for many centuries throughout the world. The chahar-bagh (four-part garden), delineated by a central fountain, draws inspiration from the Qur’anic imagery of the Garden of Paradise. Sheltered yet open, it combines granite and greenery with geometry, symbolism and the sound and flow of water. Visitors will enjoy the sanctuary of calm against the backdrop of the city bustle below.
