Outdoor spaces for urban living

 

The urban lifestyle is enhanced in this newly completed development just a few blocks from the headquarters of Google. The design provides common areas for residents to mingle and enjoy a fire pit, seat walls and benches. Bio-retention areas capture all of the water runoff from the building and paving. A tree lined paseo between the townhomes creates separation and privacy. Deciduous trees have been placed along the south and west side of the development to provide summer cooling while allowing the winter sun to warm the homes. All plants are water conserving and are watered with a drip irrigation system.
