The Marlow offers 98 new residences along San Francisco’s central Van Ness Avenue. In contrast to this busy and dynamic urban corridor, CLA designed a serene and minimalist courtyard as a place for residents to relax and recharge. The courtyard features a bocce court, outdoor cooking and dining, a firepit and a lawn area. The planting palette includes native and drought tolerant species and the building’s storm water is filtered through a series of infiltration planters. All of the landscape elements are incorporated into a simple, modernist composition that integrates the site and the building.
