The goal for this project was to develop an overall theme for the landscape of the site that offers a sense of place while providing shaded areas for people to gather. The buildings were placed on the site in a campus-like fashion and are oriented to take advantage of the surrounding mountain views. The buildings focus around a large central courtyard that is the main gathering point for the firm’s employees. The challenge was to take advantage of the change in elevation across the site and create several opportunities for large and small groups to meet. A small water feature placed within the central gathering courtyard creates an oasis feeling.
