The 14th Street vertical garden project is a colorful and playful addition the the streetscape of the Mission District, an area know for it murals and street art in San Francisco. With no actual in-ground gardening space on the site the front facade of the building became alive with a 30' by 40' living wall. The South facing direction of the wall was an opportunity to use a plant pallet that was full of color and flowers, bringing humming birds and butterflies back into the concrete jungle. A unique feature of the design is the 4000 liter water collection tank buried under the garage that captures the roof's rain water runoff and uses it to water the plants. This project was a collaboration between Brandon Pruett and Amanda Goldberg from Planted Design.
This project received a Platinum International Plantscape Award by AmericanHort in their "Design" category.
