This penthouse terrace in Soho is refreshingly renewed with a lounge-like appeal for an inviting, yet refined atmosphere. A revamp of the outdoor setting by Gunn includes custom-designed teak planters, a heated plunge pool, and a planting palette of leafy textures.  A Grace Smokebush (Cotinus ‘Grace’) evolves its green leaves in the spring to producing buds that blossom feathery, puffy plumes in the summer. By fall, the shrub turns its foliage into a rich purple hue.  Finely curated with a selection of perennial grasses and other meadow plantings, Coneflower (Echinacea) and maple branches, add a sculptural display for continual interest to last through winter.
