Awards: 2009 CSI Award – Design Excellence – Hardscape
Longwood Children’s Garden is an existing glass-enclosed building converted to a fantasy garden for children. The scope includes radius panels, ornate panels, coping, cornice, surrounds, piers, caps and other trim items. The role of cast stone was to create thematic structures which blend with various other building materials and landscaping elements to complete the wonderland experience. Cast stone provided the architect with unlimited design creativity, which may have otherwise been cost prohibitive, or unavailable, with other natural materials.
