    Client: DDG Architects
    Landscape Architect: Future Green Studio
    Location: Manhattan, NY, USA

    Role: Schematic design to construction development and installation.

    Green roof, parapet planter and marquee design and construction for luxury residential building.
    The building features a unique integration of landscape into the built environment with a heavily planted entrance canopy, long linear window boxes integrated into the facade and a lush roof garden with perennials and meadow grasses. The planting palette picks up off of the neighboring High Line aesthetic and creates a sense of the wild in contrast with sleek lines of the architectural brickwork. Resilient, drought tolerant plants were specified to keep the maintenance low and while helping to create the buildings edgy identity.
