This Lawrence, NY residence gets added roof appeal. A living greenwall lends a striking focal point while concealing an unsightly AC condenser unit and generator. See more on our design process in this video published by greenroofs.com. Additional images of the project are available on the in progress page.
The publication serves as an overall guide, providing information on how to work with the context of a site, curating plant selections, and maintaining the result. The included project gives an example of incorporating a mix of planting types, from grassy perennials to evergreens (adjacent to an interior renovated by Deborah Berke Partners) into cozy and comfortable outdoor living environs.
From the design of living willow structures to curating modern garden installations, Aaron McIntire shares his inspirations, philosophy, and strategies for rooftop landscapes. See the article published in Turf Magazine.

Construction continues for the William Vale Hotel. Expected to open in 2016, the project located at 55 Wythe in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, includes a series of outdoor venues designed by the Gunn team. This rendering gives a glimpse of a well-prized asset for hotels in New York City, the pool deck, destined to make a mark among the pack of rooftop watering holes the city is known for.
Sleekly designed, the setting offers a modern chic appeal in contrast to the surrounding industrial context. Chaise lounges and cabanas fall in line with a backdrop of tree canopies on the perimeter. A few swaying palms keep the scene playful and low-key. Situated three stories up and overlooking another precious asset, a 20,000-sq ft public park space that sits below, local pool goers will get a new summer escape with a swath of Midtown Manhattan in view, while tourists will have another reason to stay in the ‘burg.
Some of our latest work in Amagansett is nearing realization at this poolside slope with a display of summer blooms reaching their peak. The insertion of a retaining wall and bluestone steps leading one up to a lounge area reshape the scene. The chosen plant varieties keep a manicured, yet natural flowing appearance with the existing woodland backdrop. Hydrangeas and ‘Blue Fortune’ agastache grow verdantly while russian sage and catmint deliver a drifting fragrance into the setting.
