About Andrea Cochran
Andrea Cochran, FASLA, is founder and principal of Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture, based in San Francisco. In its work the firm sculpts and navigates space through a seamless integration of landscape, art and architecture, drawing boundaries with a controlled palette of materials to create permeable edges that blur the line between the natural and built environment. The firm has earned wide acclaim for its public, commercial and residential work, and is recipient of numerous awards including the 2014 ASLA Design Medal, the 2014 National Design Award in Landscape Architecture from the Smithsonian’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, and multiple regional and national ASLA awards. The Cochran Lounge for Terrace Life, designed by Andrea Cochran, brings quiet elegance to high-end outdoor living and recreational environments.
The Cochran chaise lounge is a wide and comfortable armless seating element that supports users with cache, whether basking in the sun, reading a book or working on a laptop. Intended and warrantied for use in protected public spaces, the chaise lounge’s strong sculpted continuous-loop cast frame supports a cast aluminum rail that stretches and holds the seating fabric and is secured to the frame with discreet connections. A fabric self edge provides a trim border and a ¼” reveal between the structural frame and fabric rail lends the chaise lounge a “floating” quality. The fabric is Phifertex® Plus, a nylon weave that has been designed and engineered for a wide variety of applications that demand extra strength and dimensional stability. Phifertex Plus is highly durable, easy to clean and mildew, stain and fade resistant. The fabric and rail assembly is replaceable.
