Over Grey Skies

Boston MA South End

While highly desirable, roof decks are seen by the historic commission as unattractive. To gain approvals, many times the goal is to create or recreate a deck that blends with the surrounding skies in which they exist. Minimalism is often the prescribed approach. The skies may not always be grey but the galvanized steel rails of this deck seek to blend in with many weather conditions and thus are less visible from the street. A desirable result from an historic perspective. Simple, clean and durable this deck sits at the edge of the 7th floor while maximizing available space and providing a secure urban escape with panoramic views meeting both the clients needs and approval from the historic commission.
