Luxurious Retreat from the Busy Streets
The clients goal was to return the garden court to a lush green retreat, for residents to experience both in plan-view from their apartments, and as a destination. To achieve this, the garden's well designed layout of living components needed to be addressed for all their individual needs. Once assessed, a plan for remediation and substitution was developed to again deliver an orchestra of green to the buildings' common areas.
The non-functioning glass water feature as the focal point of the design required the plant material surrounding it to surpass sensory expectations by simulating water.
