Award-winning Parks + Playgrounds
BKSK has a passion for implementing design excellence in public spaces, in particular parks and playgrounds. From the Kidpower! Playground and Preschool Garden for the New York Hall of Science, to a series of comfort stations across the NYC boroughs for the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, to the Minnewaska State Park Visitor’s Center, these projects are carefully designed with sensitivity to the visitors, site, community, and environment.
We are proud to announce that two such BKSK projects were among the honorees of the Society of American Registered Architects (SARA) 2016 Celebration of Architecture and Design Program. Washington Square Park House received a Design Award of Excellence, and Battery PlayScape received a Design Award of Honor. Congratulations to the project teams!
