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.

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.
