Nancy Owens Studio designed the expansive central courtyard at a new multi-family housing complex in Williamsburg. The courtyard, sited on a rooftop, resembles a canyon between the sheer verticality of the surrounding structures. Nancy Owens Studio interpreted this voice in space as an opportunity to explore the scale through the creation of a variety of user experiences. The gently undulating ground plane and organic boardwalk allude to a meandering river. Far more than a standard city courtyard, the distinct patterning of the sensory garden can be enjoyed from the rooftop above.
