The garden occupies the roof of a 31 story building composed of full floor private residences. The design includes low limestone seat walls and steps, a mix of granite and concrete pedestal pavers, a custom exterior hot-tub with granite cladding, and a custom retractable shade structure, all complemented by lush durable plantings. Additionally, the layout responded to the client's desire for the space to easily accommodate a large dining table, small private events, and 3 to 4 outdoor sculptures.
Scott Dismukes was the lead project manager and primary client contact while an Associate at OLIN from concept design through construction administration, including directing all visual communication, technical documentation/coordination, construction review, and financial management.
