PIMLICO: Consigning the developers' tired timber decking to the shredder. we laid a cool and sexy limestone floor. This abuts a limestone-edged planter, filling otherwise lost space in a small side return eith silver birch trees, providing both shading and screening. We added some slick, contemporary outdoor furniture and lighting to complete the scheme. The minimalist terrace now appears much bigger and offers a wonderful backdrop to the apartment's dining area.
The position of the Jean Nouvel terrace on the seventh floor al- lows quiet enjoyment of the sunset in the evening and a rare view of decorative elements of nineteenth-century buildings nearby. Blue lights mounted to thespines of the umbrel- las and additional lighting amongst the plantings produce a stunning effect for a special occasion.
This colorful terrace off an apartment in a 1929 building on Park Avenue is landscaped with hydrangeas, pansies, boxwood, and red maples. The pale stone paving contrasts with the bright flowers and black planters. The master bedroom includes a second smaller terrace, which displays a Jenny Holzer sculpture.
