101 Bedford


Our team designed the green roof system including planting palette, layout, and installation on this second floor courtyard of the 101 Bedford residential building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Working with limited structural capacity, our team coordinated with structural engineers to determine the appropriate soil depth range and locations for a variety of trees. Our team also designed and installed a bocce court and a variety of rooftop planters on the main roof of the building. The plant selection includes many native perennial shrubs, trees, and flowers to demonstrate the beauty of New York City’s native flora.
