ARC is a residential development located in Long Island City, Queens featuring a ground level courtyard and rooftop amenity spaces. A central feature of the shared courtyard space is a greenhouse, allowing for outdoor events to take place year round. The gabion walls of the raised planting beds are offset by the warm tones of wood features and natural stone paving, and responds to the gabion walls integrated into the building facade. Clusters of lounge seating, dining tables and several bench types afford additional privacy for small groups to gather within the larger courtyard. The rooftop amenity space is organized around a pool, with chaise lounges for sunbathing and a custom pergola for those who prefer a shadier place to relax. Spectacular views of the city skyline can be seen from the three private outdoor kitchens and dining areas.
