Jacob Kulin (Kulin Modern) and I worked together on Symphony Park, and we were recently looking for the next opportunity to collaborate. Fortunately that came about on a rooftop this time. Jacob helped me design an architectural railing for a roof deck in Boston's Back Bay, and then did the manufacturing/installation.
This new roof deck had stunning views of the city yet many utilities and condensers that could not be relocated. The custom railing helped us screen those utilities yet didn't block airflow. We designed a two-sized asymmetric pattern that was waterjet cut from 60/61 half-inch solid aluminum and then anodized. The back bottom third has an acrylic panel for additional screening and lighting effects.
