PROJECT: Greenhouse at Drew-Hamilton Houses

Client: New York City Housing Authority

Location: 220 West 143rd Street
Harlem, New York, NY

Project Goal: The Greenhouse acts as an initial step in redeveloping this small community park in Harlem, New York. The project revisits nature as a fundamental element; allowing the residents of Drew-Hamilton Houses to have a direct effect on their community. The materiality of the Greenhouse visually relates it to the surrounding buildings, while the function of the Greenhouse creates a contrast to its urban environment.
