Intro: NYC Roof Deck Design: Park Avenue Limestone Patio
This Park Avenue roof deck features limestone-clad planters, patio, and fireplace. The original brick around the fireplace was left intact and preserves a bit of the feel of old New York. Custom-built benches run along one perimeter, backed by Himalyan white-stem birch trees. This 1,200 square foot roof garden is also home to a lawn, an elevator going down to the other floors of this townhome residence, a custom-built outdoor kitchen, and a glass sunroom with sliding doors. The glass perimeter fencing allows for unobstructed views of the city skyline. Automatic drip irrigation lines run throughout the planters for easy maintenance. Up-lighting in the planters provides a dramatic nighttime ambience. A cascading bowl fountain adds the sound and movement of water to this roof garden retreat.
