Mulberry Streetscape


Mulberry Streetscape | NEW YORK, NY

The streetscape design transforms the underutilized and preserved section of Mulberry Street (SoHo, New York City), between Prince Street and E Houston, into a vibrant pedestrian boulevard. The challenge of this project was maintaining the current vehicular functionality of the street while turning it into an area that both promotes pedestrian use and is aesthetically enticing. The proposal achieves this by designation of the streets as controlled, adding street trees, lighting, seating and new surface pavement treatment with dynamic patterning.
