stainless steel, artisan boulders, native planting
17’h x 6.5’w x 6.5’d
Pacific Coast Hwy., Carlsbad, CA
A celebration of the Pacific Ocean and coastal lagoons, the stainless pattern incorporates abstracted imagery of local flora and fauna: a whale, pelican, heron, crab, bird-of-paradise, waves and many more elements can be discovered. Gateway to the city, it stands atop artisan boulders built by Boulderscape and designed to replicate the local sandstone cliffs. The naturalized environment is completed with integrated lighting and native planting by Schmidt Design Group that fills this busy roundabout on the lagoon, now a permanent part of the historic Pacific Coast Hwy.
