New York, NY
This courtyard serves the 450 unit building located near Central Park, a newly-renovated, 83 unit residential condominium with a tower addition. The centerpiece of the residence is its 4,000 sf central garden. The garden was designed as a cloister within the residence. A covered walk passes alongside the garden to the gym and children’s play area. A stone dust path with sitting areas winds through the garden and allows informal gatherings on the edge of a central birch grove. The grove creates a dappled light, cools the air in summer and filters the sounds of the city.
