Lakeview Apartments Competition

New York, NY, USA

Our conceptual design looks at the open space and the community life of the Lakeview Apartments.

The Lakeview Apartments’ lobbies, its wooded courtyards, and open plaza are the primary outdoor spaces that define this development. The renovation of these landscape spaces will make a place that supports, inspires and strengthens this residential community.  Our design is not about adding bells and whistles; it is about enhancing connections between spaces to make them safe and to give them life.  It is about providing places to sit, play, and work together. These design moves will give residents a connection to the landscape that will engender greater care and respect.  These are spaces that bring people together and make them feel at home.
