Landscape Architecture

Atlas at Carlsbad

The outdoor “Paseo” is a green corridor growing within the negative space created from the separation of one mega structure into two separate stand-alone buildings. The 40 foot wide “Paseo” takes advantage of the exposed structural beams connecting the buildings to support vibrant shade sail structures woven with string lights to define three wood-deck courtyards: a café, an entry plaza and a BBQ hub, and to infuse these spaces with warm tones of colorful filtered sunlight. An angular meandering path lined with stone water features acts as the connecting string between individual spaces, widening at intervals to feature meeting gardens, an outdoor living room with media wall and an amphitheater/outdoor movie theater that wraps the end of the building and terminates at an outdoor gym terrace with canyon views.
