Architect Visit: Green Roof Design by Goode Green in New York

Francesca Connolly May 14, 2010

Manhattan-based designers Chris and Lisa Goode of Goode Green are pioneers in the green roof movement in New York. In 2006, they restored a dilapidated building in Little Italy, working with architect Andrew Berman to build a penthouse apartment with a 6,000-square-foot green roof garden, including a lawn, rose bed, trees, and a vegetable garden in back of the kitchen. After realizing there was a need for green roof design in the city, the couple founded Goode Green with Amy Trachtman in 2008; among their projects are the meadow roof for the Crosby Street Hotel and the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Go to Goode Green for more information.
