Mariposa 1038 is a 5-story, 32 unit multi-family development with subterranean parking near Koreatown. The project scope included on-grade front yard planting and on-structure planting for the side yards, courtyard, and roof deck. The second floor courtyard was designed to maximize light and open space. Large cane bamboo pruned to be lacy lets light in while providing vertical green throughout the three story volume. Informal planting groupings of Gold Bleeding Heart and Variegated Lamium will thrive in shade and lighten the space with their bright leaves.
The roof deck is divided into four rooms with fire pits for small and intimate gatherings that take advantage of the view of downtown. The Fruitless Olive grove and two large Australian Willow Trees to provide shade, while the low growing shrubs and succulents provide year long color and interest.
