NBC UNIVERSAL ROOF GARDEN
The NBC Universal Roof Garden is a strategic intervention on a historical, formal garden located within the Rockefeller Plaza tower complex.
The primary goals of the project were to transform the existing historic garden into a modern and useable space for NBC staff. Large outdoor rooms were created through and stronger connections between the existing seating and new rooms were provided to improve site use. The current language of the roof terrace was reinforced by framing of formal lawns with new trees and pruned shrubbery. The lower garden planting was updated to be more wild and floral in character to contrast the strong formal elements. Lastly, additional seating within the new lawn spaces was added to enhance site useability.
