vital root / tennyson arts district
we are always delighted to work with justin cucci on his new projects - the most recent of which is vital root in the tennyson arts district. this vegetarian/vegan restaurant was an opportunity for us to play and explore with a new landscape feature that is both a piece of art and a vegetated focal point. to accomplish this we designed an artificial tree made solely of rebar steel that is centered in the main entrance patio and acts as a man made tree. over time vines and vegetation will fill the central cavity to produce a living tree on an artificial structure. in the back patio we helped to create a vision for a vegatated wall using recycled lunch trays as a colorful backdrop.
