The interiors of the place have been designed with various items that, as the name suggests, have been 'up-cycled'. Many items of everyday use are remodelled as pieces of art here. The furniture is made out of re-used pallet wood, which was originally used for making shipping containers. Scrap bicycle's tyres are used as a piece of art on the wooden panels; shelves are made of plumbing pipes and lampshades here are made out of inverted cane baskets. Says Deepa Amarnath, proprietor of 'Up Cycle Café', "There is no limit to creativity in this industry. There may be a few ideas that are well-received and a few that may not be.

And they have come to realise that terrace gardening is the key to it. A well-planned green space on the roof indirectly leads to a healthy lifestyle. A garden without chemicals is closer to nature and helps us sustain through the harsher consequences of climate change. How, you ask. Here's an example. "The temperature in our house is noticeably less than that of the outdoors," says Anusuya Sharma. Neighbours invariably spend a lot of time in her house during summer, to escape the harsh summer heat. One of the pioneers of terrace gardening in Bengaluru, 65-year-old Anusuya started growing plants on her terrace three decades ago, when the city still possessed vast expanses of open space. Over the years, she has developed one of the finest gardens in the city, with active support from her husband. Anusuya has ...
