The delicate dance between architecture and landscape architecture.
One Museum Mile came to us with a very specific challenge - their landscape needed a re-boot to reflect the elegance, language and design of this iconic building designed by architect Robert Stern.
Over the years the gardens had fallen into a bit of design disrepair.
We helped OMM by first maximizing what they currently have, shaping it up to be its optimal best while keeping the building's architecture and branding in the forefront as the primary design objective.
We then began the process of moving, removing, and adding new landscape plants that function well with the design of the building and stay fresh despite the heat and extreme wind of the location.
We also created a program to keep their tree pits looking great. Tree pits are one of the most challenging sites to work with! They are subject to pet urine, competing tree roots, vehicular exhaust, and a multitude of other obstacles.
Additionally, we helped protect our client's investment by sharing our architectural technical expertise with their management team and board, keeping their rooftop gardens from creating issues with the design load capacity of their roofing structure and preventing leaks and losses.
