Multi-Use Urban Retreat

Garden spaces for this mixed-use building, with residential on the second story and commercial/retail on the first, solved issues of circulation, privacy and harmonized with the simple, clean lines of the architecture. While the functions of each floor may differ, the materials and plantings connect them and make them feel as a whole.  The plantings are water-wise without sacrificing a feeling of fullness and oasis. They are also engaging throughout the seasons.
