The evolution of FANTÁSTICA’s success in pragmatic placemaking and public space design can be seen in our work to create outdoor spaces for Dumbo Heights, a 1.2-million-square-foot mixed-use development home to innovation firms like Etsy and WeWork.
Looking to replicate the public space model in its communal areas, we developed interactive spaces on the rooftop for WeWork, complete with furniture, art, and landscaping; as well as a pedestrian plaza adjacent to the entire Dumbo Heights complex that will help the developer draw more retail tenants.
