Soho Penthouse

Penthouse Renovation

This project was a renovation of a 3,300 sf duplex apartment in Soho including the design of 2,500 sf of rooftop terrace. In this simple, modern Living Room a floating ceiling was created to add drama. The grasses in built-in planters outside mask views of the rooftop of a building to the rear.  The  stair in the center creates a sculptural element tying the 2 floors and rooftop together, as well as bringing daylight throughout the house. Our firm also did the landscape design on the rooftop – integrating new structure that permitted the planting of (2) 40’ tall Pin Oak trees.

In this apartment the stair is the key element to unite the 2 living floors and the rooftop terrace. Lights were custom designed to “float” the entire height of the space, providing an added visual element to the simple flowing stair.

Our firm designed the landscaping of the rooftop. Tree pits were integrated into the structure so they appear to grow out of the faux lawn. 40′ tall pin oak trees were hoisted to the roof by crane.
