A playful mantra of “unify and beautify” is used to design this park at the center of an architecturally heterogenous and disparate neighborhood. The double rows of hedges used to frame the new park take a cue from the Carpinus hedges used on properties nearby, but they are used to outline the cheerful landscape now located inside and in contrast to the orthogonal forms of the surrounding buildings. An innovative use of custom-designed, high-quality poured-in-place concrete provides texture to the paving; meanwhile, whimsical vegetated mounds undulate through the landscape and flowering fruit trees add a splash of springtime color, further animating the neighborhood.
