WMC-LA participated in the conceptual design for Capitol Vista, a mixed-use project in Washington, DC.
WMC-LA’s scope included landscape architecture conceptual design services, streetscape design and green roof design. WMC-LA developed an overall public space design plan that merges an urban plaza with a public botanical garden. The urban plaza incorporated outdoor cafe seating, and pedestrian access. Public art pieces, located at three nodes throughout the site, established pedestrian gathering and transition points. The botanical garden uses existing mature trees as a high canopy and is planted with native urban species at the ground level.
