PARKS + OPEN SPACE
300 Ivy is a LEED Platinum mixed-use development situated in an area that that remains from the demolished San Francisco Central Freeway. The Landscape Architectural scope of work included an innovative streetscape, on-structure patios, courtyards, and a large Protea garden with an outdoor kitchen. The project also included the design of custom furniture, stone paving, fencing and metal work, and site amenities. The main concept for the spatial design was one of ” Mountain Climbing”. In the streetscape, lively storefronts connect to carefully programmed streetscape, with traffic calming bulb-outs and chicanes that also expand the public space or “Base Camp”. The main entry is a welcoming path winding through a primordial garden (the Ridgeline”) and expanding into an entry plaza. The roof garden, or “Summit” provides the tenants with a vibrant common spaces, an outdoor kitchen, and small allotment gardens. All planted areas act as stormwater management BMP’s.
