800 NORTH BRAND BOULEVARD

800 NORTH BRAND BOULEVARD

Client Beacon Capital
Location Glendale

800 N Brand is designed to create both a sense of enclosure and place. Inspired by the scalloped facade of William Pereira’s architecture and the undulating slopes of Glendale’s nearby mountain range, curving geometries organize the site into a trio of programmed ovular nests focused on gathering, play, and dining. Each nest has a unique feel with material, planting, and furnishing selections to support its specific program. These geometries are reinforced with a family of elongated curving seat walls that enhance the oval shapes wrapped in a continuous tree canopy that brings the character of the surrounding hill scape. Importantly, through native plant selections and sustainable paving systems, stormwater is controlled and infiltrated onsite, minimizing irrigation needs and avoids overloading the capacity of Glendale’s infrastructure.
