Chinese developer puts houses on top of a shopping mall



Want the perfect combination of shopping convenience and rooftop gardens? How about living in a house on top of a mall?

According to Geek System, a developer in China, has built a set of houses on top of a shopping mall. The mini neighbourhood is made up of four houses, and each house has a surrounding property. The houses are part of a trend of putting community gardens and other vegetation on building rooftops.

However, there is one problem with these “mall-top” residences: they are technically commercial buildings. So for the moment, they will be used as extra office space for the mall staff.

Still, the roof top design is an interesting way of addressing urban planning and creative uses of space.
