Located on a previously undeveloped and natural site, the new offices and operational facilities for this Zionsville-based landscape company seek to celebrate the use of the same natural materials it employs for its customers. The building provides an edge to the street, highlighting its functional office entry, while the operations areas are concealed from public view. The offices’ generous south-facing windows, shaded by the roof overhang, capture natural light and offer views to the surrounding natural conservation area. Rainwater sheets off the green roof into a rain garden, feeding cisterns that harvest rainwater for the company’s nursery irrigation system.
