East Village Green Roof, New York City, New York
The Green Roof at East 12th Street stands as an example of an urban transformation from a neglected space to one of beauty and poetic simplicity.
As the environmental and aesthetic advantages of green roofs become more accepted and tax incentives are established, routine roof renovations will include more sophisticated green roof components. Working with individual owners of a condominium in New York City’s East Village, Preservation Green LLC designed, managed and installed all components of a courtyard green roof. The final effect is a quiet zone of beauty and peace for all who are fortunate enough to view the green roof.
