Kips Bay Living Roof Terrace

KIPS_BAY_ROOF

The Living roof at 303 East 33rd St is an intensive green roof system. Designed to reflect heat, reduce storm water runoff, provide energy efficient insulation and function as a social space for building residents; this LEED certified project fuses human habits and natural systems to create an inspiring series of garden spaces that transform an urban roof deck into a social sanctuary. As a collective living space for a population of young professionals this living roof accommodates private parties, mingling neighbors and quiet contemplation in one fluid motion.  With an outdoor kitchen, a bocce court, several secluded lounges and a raised grove of river birch by an urban watercourse, this space opens residents to the boundless views of manhattans skyline while enjoying all the comforts of their New York lifestyle.
