The expansive sundrenched roof terrace feels relaxed and private despite its openness and is the ideal location to enjoy panoramic sunset views with the buzz of Union Square below. The existing wood flooring created a distinctively casual aesthetic, accentuated with vintage pots, and teak furnishings that were allowed to weather. Plant material was carefully chosen and placed to enhance the furniture arrangement, creating the perfect leafy backdrop. On an evening, simple up-lighting staggered throughout the planting gives a warm glow to the space and directs attention to the skyline beyond.
“The terrace provides all kinds of luxuries: birds, the ideal place to watch the changing light throughout the day, and, again, views of great architecture.”
