River Park 1
River Park 1 is a post-war condominium building within Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood. Part of the newly rezoned mixed-use development at the site of the former Long Island College Hospital, River Park 1 will be a 15-story building with a distinct façade; undulating curves in the façade are reminiscent of wave patterns.
Working with FX Collaborative, MPFP was tasked with designing and implementing a series of amenity terraces for the residents of River Park 1. The chief design intent for River Park 1 was to create a communal anchor for residents; a garden oasis nestled in an urban environment.
At the ground floor level, MPFP designed a landscaped building entry to echo the building’s distinctive facade. Of varying height and materiality, planter beds ebb and flow around the building overhang’s columns. Creating a distinct verticality in landscaped material, the beds reflect the building facade’s undulating curvature.
At the 8th Floor Terrace level, MPFP designed an open space garden with a variety of contemporary amenities. Raised planter beds give form to a series of “garden-rooms” in which residents can gather, relax, and host. An exceedingly flexible open space terrace, the 8th floor features two fully equipped outdoor kitchens, an expansive community lawn, a sundeck outlook, a gaming area, shaded lounges, and various seating elements. In designing for both passive and semi-active resident use, MPFP’s design offers residents a wide range of opportunity.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
