Best Of Year Award Winner 2018 !

Interior Design Magazine has announced their Best of Year awards and we are thrilled to announce that our project at 151 West 42nd Street has won the Corporate Office Cafeteria category. The aptly named Garden Room features our custom floor-to-ceiling living wall. This impressive curved green wall boasts 12 species and 20 varieties of plants totaling over 2,200 individual green plants, filling every inch of the nearly 1,000 square foot space.

Brilliance Lighting Award !

325 Kent Ave is a residential building that is part of the larger Domino Sugar site being developed by Two Trees Management, Inc. The building has a noticeable ‘hole’ in the center- a playful nod to the ubiquitous ‘Sugar’ donut. The building was designed by Ismael Levya Architects, while the interiors were developed by Leeser Architecture. Blondie’s Treehouse, Inc built all three main exterior amenity spaces.

The Courtyard is 9900 SF. A central, rectilinear dry-bed leads through a random planting of large Shade trees, ferns and perennials and ends at a blackened steel water feature. The water spills into a reflecting pool that features a 12’ tall sandstone sculpture by Lluis Lleo. Two thirty foot built-in benches flank the deck that surrounds the end of the reflecting pool.

The 16th Floor has two terraces that are nearly mirror images. At roughly 3000 SF, one of the terraces functions as an entertainment space with a built in kitchen and seating, while the other features a flush deck that acts as an outdoor yoga classroom.

The 17th Floor Roof deck is approximately 5000 SF and comprises distinct usage areas, including a 40’ long kitchen and bar area, picnic spaces, North and South lounges, conversational clusters and a raised garden of steppable plants and lounge chairs under shade trees. Blondie’s Treehouse, Inc. fabricated all of the architecture above the waterproofing membrane- including the custom kitchen, planters, edging, stairs, decking, lounges and benches.

Blackened Steel, ipe, rectangular pavers and linear lighting appear throughout the spaces.

 

55,000 sq ft green roof

This  55ksf  extensive  green  roof  serves  multiple  functions.  While  the  local  environment  benefits from  a  reduction  of  the  heat  island  effect,  minimized  storm  runoff  and  added  protection  to  the roof  membrane,  this  sedum  green  roof  transforms  a  series  of  bare,  unattractive  spaces  into  a vibrant,  lush  amenity  for  the  residents  of  this  new  development.  The  green  roof  is  perhaps  the most  visible  element  of  the  suite  of  high  end  amenities  and  finishes  envisioned  by  the  developer,  and  emblematic  of  the  continuing  evolution  of  this  historic  neighborhood.

Aesthetic Values (Beauty and Visibility)  One of the most visible exterior elements of the brand new Skyview Parc development, the multi-level green roof melds seamlessly with the ground level park and amenity directly to the East. This harmony is one of the key functions of the green roof, achieving a cohesion with the surrounding area and transforming a series of bare rooftops into a broad, cascading waterfall of vibrant green.

The  green  roof,  perhaps  the  most  visible  exterior  feature  of  this  gleaming  new  luxury  development,  is  symbolic  of  the  improvements  to  the  neighborhood.  The  success  of  this  project  has  already  led  to  further  investment  in  the  surrounding  area,  with  new  construction  and  infrastructure  plans  pointing  toward  a  bright  new  future  for Flushing.  The  relationship  between  the  glitzy,  upscale  amenities  like  the  green  roof  and  the  records  in  sales  is  impossible  to  miss-  the  green  roof  is  a  benefit  not  only  to  the  residents  and  the  environment  at  large,  but  as  an  effective  sales  tool  for  developers  and  marketers  as  well.
