Growing trends in adding roof terraces to city homes in order to maximize space and offer something unique to the property are becoming increasingly popular in the USA – by extending these luxury properties up and out, in the form of under-utilized roof space, we are creating a contemporary and enviable outdoor living area with city views. The challenge in Hamilton Park was opening up this roof space without compromising the historical architecture of the building. In neighboring Manhattan, The Glazing Vision Skybox was already approved by the Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC) and Department of Buildings as a discreet roof access solution that preserved the historic roofline of the row.
Our skybox skylight innovation has allowed previously unsuitable homes to invest in never-before-achievable roof terraces that add value to the property and open up home living. In Jersey City, Dixon Projects collaborated with the Historic Preservation Council (HPC) to find a creative engineering solution that would minimize the the appearance of modern materials on this historic home. The Skybox was project perfect and Hamilton Park is the first ever New Jersey implementation. Offering discreet rooftop access, the low profile and modest dimensions allowed this skylight to blend in with the rest of the roofline architecture. The result is unobtrusive, fully operable, easy to use roof deck access.
