Top five tips for creating a rooftop deck

Rooftop decks have emerged as highly coveted and beloved spaces for residents of dense urban areas during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, outdoor rooftop spaces will remain desirable for current and prospective residents beyond the global health crisis. Access to the outdoors positively impacts mental health, provides space to create community, exercise and meditate, plant gardens and grow food. In cities where street-level greenspace and parkland are scarce or at-a-premium, rooftop decks can be lifelines for people living in mid and high-rise buildings. However, they require some special consideration because of their location.

Historic Crossroads

Historic Crossroads

The owners of Bank of America Plaza wanted to offer their tenants even more than a prime location in an iconic building and so, beginning in 2016, they invested in a complete redesign of their street-level presence. “We have created a more pedestrian-friendly area with smaller shop fronts, outdoor seating areas, and a new, extended main building entry to engage the public plaza,” 1 says Redline Design Groups lead designer Richard Boswell. One section of the exterior courtyard had an existing fountain but was largely under-utilized open space with no seating available. The initial vision to incorporate wall mounted curved benches into the fountain surround led to conversations between Architect, Richard Boswell and Maglin’s CEO, Ian McAskile and Territory Manager, Andrew Coen. Bank of America Plaza owners, TIER REIT wanted a variety of table and seating configurations and embraced color to enliven the space.

Site Furniture Selection and Placement Guides

Site Furniture Selection and Placement Guides

Furniture is just one component in the design of the public realm. As designers and manufacturers, we have to take into consideration the function and goals of the site when designing products and the places they end up shaping. Navigation patterns and intent to use the elements (amenities) within a space are just as important as the aesthetics of the product itself. We focus on people who will use the site – how and when they will do so. A flexible product provides countless layout opportunities and can adapt to the site's functional goals. Follow our design considerations, and learn how to turn your spaces into places.

Commercial trash receptacles to reduce litter and promote recycling

Is your business constantly covered in litter? Commercial trash receptacles can help fix littering issues and promote recycling. In fact, one of the biggest contributors to littering is a lack of trash receptacles. If people cannot find a place to throw away their garbage, and most people won’t look that hard, they will toss it wherever they can. Some may assume there is no consequence for littering and that someone else will pick it up as part of their job. You can help make the decision to responsibly dispose of trash easy by ensuring there are plenty of commercial trash cans and receptacles around your property.
