Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture


McGuire & Hester



Connecting two research buildings at the University of California San Francisco, this one-acre courtyard was designed by Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture to meet the needs of the scientists and staff.

It was their goal that the courtyard be a place that fostered social interaction and provided welcome breaks from their largely individual work. To do this, Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture worked with Landscape Forms to specify Bancal standard and special benches, Chase Park litters, as well as Studio 431 custom benches and tables arranged in the space such that they promote spontaneous discussions and accommodate large group meetings as well as more intimate gatherings.
