Ipe Hardwood Decking Selected for Stunning Rooftop Deck Design

Written by on

Assembly Row at 450 Artisan Way is a wonderful mixed-use development including offices, restaurants, shopping, a cinema, public green spaces and residences at this remarkable renewal site. Recover Green Roofs constructed nine separate garden areas on three rooftop plazas, including Ipe hardwood decking and stone pavers, to create this welcoming and sustainable rooftop deck oasis.

Recover Green Roofs, a company located in Somerville, MA, is “a company of dedicated green roof professionals, landscape designers, horticultural specialists and craftsmen who provide guidance and unparalleled experience to each new project.” Their commitment to a holistic design-build approach is evident in their recent work at the transformation of a former brownfield site into a warm and embracing aerie overlooking the Mystic River in Somerville, MA.

The artful combination of stone pavers, sustainably harvested natural Ipe hardwood decking and perennial plantings is a testament to the design vision of the project architect, Copley-Wolff Design Group and the craftsmanship of Recover Green Roofs.

The rooftop deck and its spectacular views is the ‘star of the show’ at this lovely site. According to Copley-Wolff, the “decking and benches bring warmth to the roof deck, which is defined by curvilinear precast seat walls and pavers.” Sustainably harvested Ipe decking is widely regarded by design and construction professionals as the best natural decking material for projects of this type.
