Landscape Architecture

The Alexandria (and The Farmer & Seahorse)

This site sits within a monoculture for biotech corporate office buildings.  The space was envisioned to breathe life into an otherwise lifeless neighborhood. What transformed became a vibrant one-of-a-kind commercial space of mixed-use.  The outdoor patio allows restaurant guests to enjoy a pleasant meal, while social spaces allow for a glass of wine around a fire-pit, a chess match, or an assortment of other outdoor lawn games. The surrounding landscape on both front and back sides of property is edgy, gregarious, and offers a little bit of everything for everyone.
