Design development of the interior courtyard between building wings. The intimate courtyard functions as a place of leisure and passage from the lobby to the pedestrian garage access at the rear of the plaza. A small grouping of giant cane bamboo grows atop a mounded berm to one side of the pathway. Brushed stainless steel furniture was used in the design, enhancing the modern, minimalist feel of the space. The remaining planting areas consist of repeated banding of hardy shrubs and ground cover.
