Starr Whitehouse designed four terraces for an affordable housing development offering 925 low-rent units in Queens. The main amenity terrace, located on the thirteenth floor, provides a high density of social and recreational spaces accessible to the entire building. Gray birch trees and dense plantings create intimate spaces for dining and relaxation. This woodland transitions up to a sunning deck surrounded by grasses and wildflowers overlooking the East River. The fifth floor terrace serves as a viewing garden from residences above while also providing the environmental benefits of a green roof. This roof garden will provide a contemplative space to escape the city and enjoy the view.
