Brooklyn Heights Rooftop Terrace

Intense, layered plantings – perennials, grasses, annuals and birch trees – frame views out toward the sunset, and an open, flexible layout that allows for three season outdoor entertaining characterize this rooftop project. A hatch door opens to a wood and stone deck enveloped in planters and shaded by a steel frame pergola. The project balances curated views with providing a sense of privacy on the open terrain of brownstone rooftops.
