Kips Bay Living Roof Terrace
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.
