This professional couple wanted to create a home in TriBeCa that was both warm and modern; for modern they created minimal interiors for warmth they hired Just Terraces to bring a bit of the sophisticated country to the urban jungle. By placing plants in areas close to windows the spectacular yet hard city views were softened. Concrete pavers were changed to natural blue stone. To maximize the views when seated, outside the kitchen a platform with planters, lighted bench and seating areas allowed guests to sit and enjoy views looking over the 5’ high parapet. Upstairs, a custom wall divides the utility area from what is now a lavish hot tub area and outside the bedroom a ‘doggie comfort area’ protected by thick bamboo allows their two dogs a bit of luxury. Outside the plants and materials used harmonize beautifully with the finishes inside and enhance the urban experience of nature, views and architecture.
