West End Avenue Roof Terraces

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE

These dramatic roof terraces with views of the Hudson River were designed for a young family's program of outdoor living, entertainment and recreation. They feature multiple dining, seating and lounging areas on granite and limestone paving situated in a modular green roof system of blooming sedum. The terraces are framed by a self-ballasted, ipe-clad railing which provides protection and a backdrop for the plantings and seating areas. Other features include a stainless steel heated and shaded pergola, zinc planters and wind resistant plantings of American boxwood, bayberry, mugo pine, artemesia and clematis.
