Beacon Hill Roof Deck

In the heart of Beacon Hill, this rooftop garden takes advantage of the building’s small footprint by dividing the terrace into multiple programmatic areas. Dining for 6, café seating, a spa hot tub, and conversation lounge are all accommodated while capitalizing on city views. The planting plan integrates long blooming, low water-use annuals and perennials to minimize needed maintenance during the year. Custom containers were designed to insulate plant roots and manufactured locally in Massachusetts from recycled materials.
