LEED Silver Innovation Center

Location Glendale, California, United States

Client Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Scope Landscape Architecture

Size 10.5 acres

SWA provides landscape design services for the redevelopment of existing corporate offices at the Grand Central Creative Campus, a center for innovation and creativity on 10.5 acres of mixed office, amenity, parking, and outdoor space. The design is organized around a strong central pedestrian spine that frames the Verdugo mountains to the east, connects people with a variety of pedestrian streets and, provides flexible outdoor rooms for intimate meetings and larger group activities. This LEED Silver project utilizes a majority of drought-tolerant plants, recycled water for irrigation and fountains, sustainably harvested wood furnishings, and, when possible, reclaimed wood content to create inspiring spaces. Encouraged by the client’s request, a Sycamore bosque reveals an “Enchanted Forest” of winding paths, swaths of planting, and a table that can seat the design staff.
