A Natural Oasis on the Upper West Side
Creating a living, natural connection between the buildings the Park unifying Waterline Square celebrates regeneration and beauty. This cherished outdoor environment is at once a backyard and an oasis, accessible from each of the three residential towers, graced with sculptural fountains, manicured lawns, meandering paths, cascading water features and a fully-equipped children's playground.
I consider myself a designer of places that must heal or in some way contribute to the environment. On every project, we ask: Does it bring people together in positive ways? Does it seem likely to endure?
Moving from an urban streetscape to the Hudson River, the landscape is one choreographed gesture, acknowledging the energies and distinct characters of the buildings in its path, morphing to its surroundings.
