The landscape for this state of the art research facility was designed to reflect the neighboring working farms and orchards. Linear bands of grasses, chamomile, rosemary, rose, lavender, and flax establish the framework for this farm-like landscape. Olive, Cork Oak and Crape Myrtle trees were planted to reinforce the plaza spaces and provide shade. The recent addition of a retractable shade sail helps to shade the plaza on hot summer days. Creo’s principal was responsible for project management and senior design while at MPA Design.
