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 -

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?

Lynn Gaffney Architect, PLLC added this to Evolution of a Detail
November 19, 2014
The Evolution of a Detail – How does something as precise as an architectural detail come about? Sometimes intuition for a particular feature of a project jumps out in importance very early on and becomes a muse of sorts for the whole space. Highlighting a particular material and how it intersects with others, for example, or playing with the openness of a required boundary. Other times the best details come from a struggle – a difficult problem solving exercise that demands keen attention during design or construction. How does a stair and railing fit in a tight space? Or how can we achieve the extreme cooking exhaust force required in a chef’s home kitchen? In the best circumstances the architect and her in-house team collaborate with the client, engineer, contractor, craftsperson, and/or vendor to achieve the finished solution. The detail is a shared achievement making it all the more special. Following are three details or features from some of my firm’s residential projects and the stories behind them.
