Recently completed, 1133 Manhattan is a new residential building in Greenpoint, Brooklyn designed with S9 / Perkins Eastman for the Domain Companies. Landscape spaces include a lush 10,000 square foot courtyard and a roof garden amenity terrace with views of the East River. This LEED project includes drought tolerant plants like sedum and native grasses, custom wood benches, supersized planters with birch trees and a pergola with lounge area. In the courtyard, a fully equipped outdoor kitchen provides ample space to hold large parties. Multiple hang out spaces abound including low lounge areas separated by green screens and café tables under umbrellas all of which are linked by a central boardwalk spine lined with benches. The roof garden borrows the dramatic skyline view of Manhattan becoming a destination space for sunbathing or informal nighttime gatherings. Three linear boardwalks run north and south on the roof, connecting a series of lounge and dining areas.
