In this video, West 8 co-founder Adriaan Geuze discusses the design process behind New York City’s largest private outdoor gardens, which will be located at One Manhattan Square in the Lower East Side. Currently under construction, the 800-foot-tall glass residential tower will feature more than an acre of exterior garden space designed by West 8 Urban Design and Landscape Architecture.

Inspired by parks and urban spaces from around the world, the dynamic landscape scheme will feature a range of programmatic spaces, including a tea pavilion, a putting green, a treehouse and children’s area, and a fire pit seating area offering romantic views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.
