Narrative                                              American Nevada Offices B1, 2, 3

 

The creation of a corporate entry plaza provides circulation and visual appeal for individuals walking through the space and from offices overlooking the main courtyard area. A geometric design theme was positioned on a 45 degree grid in order to add a dynamic play between sitting space and pedestrian circulation space.

Central planter islands with large specimen canary palms add a focal point to the central courtyard. The planting theme is a mini oasis. Drought tolerant plants coupled with lush palm plantings accentuate the vertical plane as well as add color and abundant texture to the horizontal plane. Planters double as seatwalls providing various options for seating. Architectural lighting and the extensive use of uplighting allow for continued use at night. Overall, the design of the space allows for multiple users to enjoy, work, and thrive in a lush environment full of varied experiences.
