Community Outdoor Living

We love creating large scale outdoor living environments at public and semi-public locations. Some of our favorite projects have incorporated wading pools, water lily displays, outdoor wedding spaces, and expansive shade structures. From concert venues to art gardens, we develop unique spaces that accommodate crowds while also allowing for intimate conversation and individual experiences. As in residential design, Ivy Street Design generates creative design concepts while resolving critical issues like circulation, grade changes, and drainage.

Although projects like this may involve a variety of specialists and products, you can rest easy knowing that Ivy Street Design belongs to an extensive network of landscape and structural professionals. We search nationally and even world-wide for the best materials while also advocating for the economic and environmental benefits of locally-sourced products.
