TANK 2012 Client photographs

These photographs were taken of the roof deck (May 2012) by our client and show the wonderful planting and how truly green it is up on a roof in the midst of industrial/commercial Chelsea. There are also a few photos of the clients' adorable cat Jenny within the space.

Yes they are tube shape - a few different sizes (TS 5x2x 5/16, TS 3x2x 1/4, TS 6x2x 3/8). Our structural engineer was superb - Blue Sky Design in NYC -

The red tree is a Japanese maple and I'm sorry I do not recall the other tree. Thank you for your interest and I'm sorry for the delay.

Goldenteak brand - This is a beautiful space. I am wondering if you are happy with the golden teak product and how it has held up being outside? I am thinking of purchasing the same. Thanks

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to 11 Fences to Match a Modern Mood
Wood slats also work well with climbing plants. This urban roof deck lets plants climb the fence as well as a canopy over the dining area. The mix of different types of plantings is well considered alongside the three-sided fencing in the intimate space.
Let us know where you're located and how you enjoy your outdoor space. Do you sunbathe, entertain or watch the little ones while you enjoy a cocktail, have meals or toast marshmallows?
