Arsenal Roof Garden
Designed for NYC Parks Department.
The Arsenal serves as the headquarters for NYC’s Parks Department. It’s also one of Central Park’s historically significant structures. When a roof reconstruction became necessary, we had a great opportunity to design and install a new roof garden.
Working with the building’s situation and the many employees who use the space, we created a design that allows for events as well as more secluded spaces for employees to retreat. We also installed low-maintenance green roofs in less-accessible areas. Thanks to great maintenance and dedicated volunteer work, the roof looks better than ever after six years.
