Multi-Family Residential/Mixed-Use

Elan at Huntington Beach
City of Huntington Beach, California

This mixed-use development is a combination of high-density apartments and commercial units in an urban setting. The two buildings are podium-type structures to maximize the usable footprint of the site and mitigate the required parking on-site. It includes a “Market Plaza” that runs through the middle and allows access to the commercial units. The landscape design for the “plaza” area includes decorative paving, art elements, and raised planters that provide a “sense of place” for tenants and visitors alike. The primary building has a central recreational element that includes an architectural lighting element, pool, spa, sunken outdoor/beach fireplace, kitchen with architectural overhead and many more amenities to better serve its residents. The landscape uses raised “on-deck” planters to create an isolated “haven” to allow the tenants to enjoy a peaceful, resort type of experience.

Adagio on The Green Apartments
Mission Viejo, California
Watermarke Properties / Wermers Properties

An Andalusian themed development in the city of Mission Viejo, “Andalucía” consists of two separate apartment buildings connected by a bridge over Oso Creek. The buildings and their amenities were sited to take advantage of the adjacent views over Mission Viejo Golf Course. The northern building is a podium-type structure with a recreational/pool area and two courtyards that include entertainment patios, an outdoor kitchen, fountains and sun deck areas. The southern building also includes a pool area that has a commanding view of the adjacent golf course. The creative landscape solution is the common thread that ties the site together as a unified development.

Santa Barbara at Rancho Cucamonga
City of Rancho Cucamonga, California
Lewis Operating Corporation

Influenced by Mediterranean and Spanish colonial heritage, Santa Barbara at Terra Vista is a community that offers resort-like amenities with lush, picturesque grounds.  Throughout the community, one will find many gathering areas as well as unique themed landscape courtyards, including an edible garden, palm garden, moon garden, scented, fern, touch, sage, and sound garden.  Down the center of the project, is the central spine road with wide pedestrian walks and densely planted in an early Californian plant scheme design to simulate “State Street” in Santa Barbara.  At the western terminus of State Street, is a whimsical “Alice Keck” Park with a serpentine wall and a variety of play structures and decorative hand painted tiles.  At the other end, is the Montecito garden offering a large fire place, BBQ, retractable cloth shade structure, and a “working garden” for residents.  This project was designed to be a pedestrian space with the landscaping being the dominating feature and it shows.

University House Fullerton
City of Fullerton, California
Inland American Communities

University House Fullerton is a mixed-use development that forms the gateway to Fullerton’s Education District, combining resort-like student housing with the convenience of an urban retail center. The streetscape’s design activates the pedestrian experience with uniquely designed storefronts, organic seating nodes, and contemporary urban plazas that provide opportunities for public art displays. Three distinct residential interior courtyards create a college student’s paradise, featuring lounge pools, formal gardens, and casual whimsical landscapes that alternately serve as study courts and social arenas.
Carabella at Warner Center
City of Los Angeles, California
Fairfield Residential

An urban infill project located in the fashionable Warner Center district, this project gains inspiration from retro LA style to create a fresh, modern ambience attractive to young professionals. The landscape follows the strong clean lines of the contemporary architecture by introducing large horizontal wood panels as a visual barrier, defining private spaces and softening the streetscene. A string of courtyard spaces and an aggressive landscape theme provides the residents the opportunity to sit in intimate garden spaces throughout the site.
Renaissance at Uptown Orange
City of Orange, California
BRE Properties

Renaissance provides the best of both worlds in central Orange County.  Four-story high end wrap apartments feature lushly planted interior courtyards along with garden-style walk-up units with large landscape open spaces.  The landscape design is based upon an Italian resort and provides spaces for both small and large gatherings of people throughout.  Using large existing trees on-site gives the site the look of a mature landscape.  The combination of the vibrant colors of the architecture against the bright green of the rich landscape material promotes the effect of resort-style living and makes this design a step above the rest.  The recreational facilities spread throughout the landscape provide a variety of opportunities for exercise, social interaction or relaxation.  The main recreational area has a resort-style lap pool and spa.  Adjacent to this is the entertainment plaza that includes barbecues and a firepit fashioned from an “old-world” Italian wellhead.  Within the pool sundeck are canvas canopies that strengthen the theme and character of the Italian resort at Renaissance.
