1925 E. Maple is the reimagining of a 2.4 acre site with a 45,270 square foot office building in El Segundo previously occupied by Boeing. The design improvements include two new building entries with canopies and arrival terraces. Large portions of the existing parking lot was removed to add canopy trees and infiltration planters for storm water treatment. The utilitarian north alley was converted into a flexible gathering space with elevated wood deck and at grade seating areas with firepits and buffer planting.
The plant palette was chosen for it’s low water consumption with year round color and seasonal interest. Flowering trees include Palo Verde, Tipu and Forrest Pansey Redbud trees with Chinese Elms and evergreen ‘Arbutus Marina’ trees. Trees are underplanted with large drifts of Pink Muhly Grass, Chondropetalum, Carex, Agave, Dianella, and Sage to help unify the site while defining active user spaces.
