About the Project:

Redefining the 17th floor of the historic Western Publishing Building in midtown Manhattan, HMWhite created a contemporary garden terrace as an extension of Shorenstein Properties’ new corporate offices. The 6,500 square-foot living roof establishes a biophilic transformation of the office environment and daily employee experience. A lush garden wraps the building and visually merges interior office spaces with a meadow landscape.
