PB&Co’s work at the Cavalleri Condominiums involved rehabilitating existing landscapes and inserting new, functional spaces for residents of this recently upgraded multifamily development. A total of eight structures step up the steeply graded site from the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), but offer a range of opportunities for residents to engage in passive as well as active spaces.
PB&Co’s design introduces a water-wise, native-focused palette throughout the site, intended to replace non-native species and enhance the California feel of the landscape. The intersection with PCH initiates visitors via a meadow garden, and at each of the site’s four entry points; two vehicular and two pedestrian. Large and small gathering spaces are included in the middle of the site via a central garden, and pool and entertaining terraces, while quieter spaces such as a dog run, great lawn, and even a meandering strolling path are sited further up the site away from traffic and noise of the PCH.
