The homeowner desired to add a forest element to his otherwise modern home, so designers added a greenscape with perimeter screening to help keep the rooftop as private as possible. Bold hued, stylish furniture was chosen for this space to add comfort as well as aesthetic, while designers used white paving to reflect the sunlight and help keep heat off the rooftop terrace.
In the midst of this busy city, a rooftop oasis awaits. A Diamond spa greets homeowners as they come home from a long day. To help maintain privacy while homeowners enjoy their luxury getaway, Ipe slats and bamboo trees have been added to the space.
To bring homeowners from their modern indoor space to their luxury outdoor spa, designers added a mossy green path. The moss on the path compliments the rest of the greenscape and leads comfortably to the Diamond Spa.
To join the living area with the master bedroom, designers added a bamboo walk. This walkway serves the dual purpose of adding privacy and fulfilling the owner's desire to have his terrace feel like a forest.
A variety of paving materials, including limestone, ipe wood and blue beach stones, were used to fill the ground space in this New York City backyard, adding a sense of serenity and flow to an otherwise small and elongated area.
This Asian-themed outdoor living area mixes simple and traditional styles with modern technology, featuring a glass-enclosed fireplace and an outdoor television. Two sofas face one another across a low coffee table among various potted plants and lantern-inspired lighting.
Evergreens in custom ipe planters line this modern urban backyard and provide privacy from neighboring buildings. New York City fire code limits the amount of wood decking that can be used in terrace and roof design, so the designers turned this limitation into a design feature.
Since this building is located in New York City's historic neighborhood of Tribeca, designers had to develop a plan that would meet the client's desire for a modern, clean setting while also meeting the requirements of the Landmark Preservation Committee.To do this, designers added an Ipe wood fence around the Diamond spa and bamboo trees to help keep the space private.
Because New York City has fire regulations specifying the amount of SYNLawn artificial grass an occupant may use, the landscapers made an efficient choice by placing a simple children's play area atop a bed of the grassy stand-in. Children can play in this Soho backyard while adults enjoy a beautiful day outside in the pergola only a few feet away.
