For this tallest residential tower in Brooklyn, we designed the 4,950sf 5th floor terrace. The amenity space includes a large outdoor dining area with a stone clad grill and cooking area, a custom designed play structure with two slides, a rock climbing wall and extensive landscaping. The planting defines the terrace spaces with a row of flowering dogwoods, multi-stem birch trees and a multitude of herbaceous perennials and grasses for seasonal color and interest.
The Rehabilitation of this 3 acre neighborhood park in the heart of Princeton Borough is a collaborative process with the Borough and the Residents surrounding the park. We worked with SALT Design Studio Landscape Architects to develop a design that is reflective of the needs of the residents and the strong desire to keep the park’s heavily treed areas and open field.
We have introduced a sustainable landscape design that directs storm water into rain gardens where boardwalks pass over. Among the many play experiences there is a plan for a featured Tree house will be nestled among the large Oaks in the park as a central architectural component and play element for children.
Working with the Marathon Engineers and the City of Atlantic City, we are designing a new park with a central water feature and sprayground for the children in this downtown neighborhood. New landscape berms filled with native coastal barrier plantings, new pathways and shaded seating areas will be provided.
A new condominium on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, the Laureate has the essence of a grand pre-war building. We designed three roof gardens for the residence that included lounging areas and a children playground.
The design for this park was intended to provide a park and playground for all ages of the neighboring community. An important element of the park was to bring back trees and lawn to an otherwise completely asphalted area.
Two projects with the NYCSCA have been recently completed. At PS 175 in Queens, it was requested to create an attractive buffer around the school grounds. A custom steel picket fence was built on a new concrete curb around the front and decorative metal edging around the side yard with hardy landscaping. The second project, is a playground at PS 100 in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn. The playground area is on the jointly owned Century Playground with the NYCDPR. The design features a nautical theme as it is only a few blocks from the shoreline and consist of painted games on the new asphalt pavement and a play structure set on rubber safety tiles.
