To support Vocon Architecture’s philosophy “Let Your Spaces Speak”, MPFP’s terrace design was inspired by the identity of the New York landscape and the well-being of the Microsoft user-groups.
Facing North, the “Empire State Birch Grove” celebrates views of the Empire State Building and the Manhattan skyline by framing them with Adirondacks-inspired birch trees, offering shade to larger gatherings in the summer. Facing South, the Hamptons Secret Garden encapsulates smaller quiet spaces with raised planters, ornamental grasses, and perennial planting reminiscent of dune landscapes. Quite the opposite, Gaming Alley was designed as a Penthouse spill-out, where users may be entertained by games such as Table Football, while building team relationships. Inside the Penthouse, the Winter Garden was designed with a reverse snow-globe effect in mind. Like a sun-room, it’s wrapped by a ribbon of glass where spectators may view a snowy winter landscape while enjoying indoor tropical plants.
Other supporting features include plant material selected for year-round interest, such as Japanese Maple and Birches for their autumn leaves, and Rattlesnake Master for their unique button-like dead-heads in the snow. The furniture is equipped with wireless internet and electrical outlets for comfortable outdoor use. Effectively the landscape is designed to be robust, and adapt to the demands of the times.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
