TANK ROOFTOP - Exterior Views

View from southern neighboring building. Wood boards of trellises are spaced differently depending on exposure to sun, wind and industrial noises as well as privacy concerns. Early planting as well as the storage/potting "shed" (at lower left) are shown here too.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The steel and wood were selected for their resilience and durability, and they've already sustained the 90-mile-per-hour winds of hurricanes Sandy and Irene. “We dealt with finishes that would weather well and require little or no maintenance,” says Gaffney. And while Gaffney designed supplemental acoustical barriers for nearby industrial fans, the trellis itself proved sufficient in noise reduction. She worked with Andy Renfroe of Blue Sky Design for additional structural assistance. The roof garden required increased structural support, so additional beams were added to interior spaces below.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

We worked in-house, as well as with an acoustic consultant and some very skeptical cats to determine the various spacing of the wood planks on the trellis. This attention to the rhythm of openings allows privacy with enough view, shade with enough sunlight access and also solved client requirements for sound buffering and cat barrier.
