PLATFORM is an open-air assemblage of unique shops, restaurants, pop-up venues and creative offices. The landscape design aims to connect the dispersed elements and compressed urban spaces. Bursts of vegetation interrupt otherwise fluid circulation, slowing pedestrian traffic while providing dynamic views across the site.
Often used as a large-scale event space by night, many opportunities for intimate gatherings encourage an informal daytime population of regulars as well. The plant palette strengthens continuity of the overall project atmosphere, while the designation of three distinct plant zones (native, desert and subtropical) gives individual identity to smaller areas within the project.
