MANHATTAN PUMP STATION PUBLICD ESIGNED BY HAZEN AND SAWYER + TAEIK KIM
Design since public works facilities are known more for function than from, the Manhattan Pump Station’s stylish design elements are exceptional. Our intent was to provide an open, inviting public building with large glass areas that allow the community to look inside.
Since water is the NYCDEP’s main focus, we incorporated that theme into the building’s appearance. We also took into account the way light hits the building at various times of the year, to ensure that the strucutre will not cast dark shadows onto nearby building.
