West Village Townhouse

This townhouse garden, designed for an iconic fashion designer in the heart of the West Village, was inspired by the client’s garden in Paris.
In the rear garden, stone paving extends from the adjoining media room and is punctuated by a single specimen Honey Locust tree. The surrounding planting includes Viburnum, Rhododendron, Hydrangea, Ferns, and a loose hedge of European Hornbeam. A strictly green and white color palette creates a truly serene space.

On the sunny roof terrace, a central pergola laden with flowering wisteria shades the dining table and adjacent outdoor kitchen, complete with a grill, sink and refrigerator. Cedar-lined cupboards provide storage for dinnerware and additional outdoor cushions. At either end of the garden, lounges create additional space to relax or entertain amongst an established mix of Viburnum, Hydrangea, and Nepeta while Iceberg Roses provide an abundance of all-white blooms from late Spring to Autumn.

“Harrison Green’s incredible attention to detail is a quality that is all too rare, as is their respect for my home – as they treat it like their own.”
