East Village Hospital Campus Courtyard

This publicly accessible plaza in the East Village of Manhattan is a signature space within this hospital campuses multi-year master plan. Canted stone walls with planting anchor the plaza on the corner of this busy intersection and create a verdant foreground to the hospital building. The landscape provides dynamic views for the interior lobby space and protected places to sit and gather amongst lush plantings. Trees and shrubs add ecological value by attracting pollinators and providing habitat for local birds, as well as absorbing excess rainwater before it flows into the local storm water system.
