From modern high-rise towers to low-rise garden settings, TC&M’s designs for office buildings combine a masterful attention to hardscape detailing with the appropriate softscape planting. TC&M’s landscape architectural designs for new and renovated offices have increased the prestige and visibility (and, of course, the rental rate) at a variety of award-winning projects.
This elegant and award winning office tower features a broad plaza at the street level with planter boxes surrounding the lower lever terraces. All of the planting is on structural slabs or roof tops. TC&M worked carefully with the architect and the structural engineer to develop a planting and hardscape design that complements the building and works economically with the structural systems.
TC&M is the landscape architect for many of the bank’s new and renovation projects. The University branch (pictured) respects the site’s history while creating an efficient banking facility for the local community. The softscape design compliments the project’s concept and design.
TC&M’s services began with a complete renovation of the center’s plaza and streetscape. The rather barren plaza was converted to a cool and relaxing environment for the building’s tenants and local office workers. TC&M designed fountains and screen walls to block the noise of the adjacent highway and added softscape and benches. The plaza is extremely popular and is the first exterior public space with designated “No Smoking” areas in Hawaii!
