The Kensington – Sky Deck
 | Boston, USA | Copley Wolff Design Group

Kensington-01
The Kensington is a new 27-story residential building located between Boston’s Theatre District and Chinatown. Copley Wolff Design Group designed a variety of outdoor spaces for the building, including a public alley, a green roof and pool deck on the sixth floor, and the streetscape surrounding the building.

The sky deck consists of two levels of seating and gathering areas with a pool on the upper level. A wooden trellis at the pool’s edge provides a shaded seating area for individuals who want a break from the hot sun. The pool deck offers a retreat for residents and serves as an extension of the interior amenities. The lower level of the roof top deck offers a variety of seating options with moveable café tables, banquette bench seating backed by lush planters, and lounge furniture that flanks an outdoor fireplace and wetbar.

The project is currently on target to receive LEED Gold Certification. As with many of CWDG’s projects, the design for the Kensington relied on the successful combination of diverse elements – lighting, green roofs, and innovative sitework.
