261 Hudson Sky Garden

New York, New York

Nestled between the Soho and Tribeca neighborhoods, every element and finish for this new 150 residential unit building has been considered “BoHo Chic.” The character and design for the building’s 4,500 SF amenity roof terrace has maintained this sensibility as both a mellow and spirited social destination for residents. With eye popping views of NYC’s skyline and the Hudson River, this amenity roof terrace offers a variety of relaxing and outdoor dining escapes that transport residents to vacation-like destinations. Distinct outdoor rooms have been spatially defined within a common planted framework that establishes a legible unifying landscape character. The roof terrace’s spatial and topographic structure allow for small private gatherings as well as large events. This coordinated plant community structure deliberately establishes a strong sense of place. Its flowing continuity of the undulating indigenous alpine wildflower meadow plantings frame linking garden paths and each nodal destination.
