项目介绍:为了建造这一1428平方英尺的屋顶场地,一个现存的后现代屋顶亭子被拆除,以建造一个现代的建筑框架,这一构思是由美国建筑师Paul Rudolph和法国建筑师Jean Prouvé与Pierre Chareau的作品而获得的灵感。一个钢框架的平台被安置了上去,在这一平台上又放置了一些景观元素:喷泉、爬藤架、种植池,还有一个室外厨房和淋浴。

Project Statement

To create the setting for this 1,428 square foot roof terrace, an existing postmodern roof pavilion was demolished to make way for a modern architectural framework inspired by the works of American architect Paul Rudolph, and French architects Jean Prouvé and Pierre Chareau. A steel-framed platform was installed, onto which a program of garden elements were placed: a fountain, pergola and planters, as well as an outdoor kitchen and shower.

The custom cast concrete pavers, sandblasted glass panels, painted steel framework, and perforated stainless steel panels contrast with the lush plantings chosen for their color, texture, scent as well as hardiness to the extreme conditions of New York City roof tops.

Furnishings for the project are custom fabrications based on modern works, as well as furniture designer Chris Lehrecke, and accommodate the client’s entertainment activities on the terrace during the day or at night. Fabrics were chosen to compliment the plant palette, as well as for durability; they remain outdoors year-round.

Terrace Features

The terrace features include the lounge area, formal dining area covered by a pergola, granite and glass mosaic fountain, outdoor cooking and bar area, and an outdoor shower. Other elements include a site audio system, extensive lighting, and an electronic drip irrigation system. Also, six built-in infrared heaters were installed within the pergola structure to extend the outdoor dining season.

As a requirement by the building management company, the entire roof terrace improvement was designed to be disassembled and removed. The structural steel frame that supports the terrace paving, pergola, fountain, planters, and railing is anchored to four structural columns of the building.

Building Materials Structural steel support framework for the paving system; custom concrete pavers; perforated stainless steel panels and painted steel framing for all the planters throughout the terrace, and the cabinets at the outdoor cooking and bar area; painted steel and stainless steel railings; perforated stainless steel wall system surrounding the outdoor shower; black honed granite for the bar, dining table top and fountain exterior; and, non iridescent black glass mosaic tile for the fountain. The pots are custom fabricated color integrated cast stone, and all furnishings are also custom fabrications.
