This setback terrace in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen was in need of a facelift. Previous owners left their mark leaving behind less than attractive piping that was once used for an overhead shade structure. Every surface, both vertical and horizontal, of this terrace was altered as part of this renovation. With the environment in mind, we selected recycled plastic deck tiles and furniture. The difference in the before and after pictures is striking. Because this terrace does not have access to water, the plant quantity and palette was restrained.

The terrace design focused on restraint and elegance. Before we started, there were too many architectural elements which distracted the eye and caused visual chaos. Our plans minimized those elements to allow the eye to focus on the amazing view of nearby Worldwide Plaza and the carefully selected furniture pieces from Loll. Now the best part of this apartment, the owner gets to enjoy the space night and day as mood lighting highlights this intimate and romantic terrace.
