This design was created for the Lokal Hotel’s third location. This garden in Fishtown, Philadelphia, is lush from all viewpoints, while simultaneously creating a walkable and functional space for hotel guests to enjoy. The botanical and vessel selection Ferox Studio has curated here offer multiple elevations and varied textures, celebrating the the irregularities of the aging corten steel and charred wood planters. The color scheme rests in muted sage, greens, silver-blues, purples and whites. The plant palette focuses on native/pollinator perennials and multi-seasonal blooms that create year-round visual interest. The industrial aesthetic of both the vessels and the structures marries the meadow to Philadelphia’s cityscape. All together, these items blend harmoniously to create a dynamic and sustainable urban meadow for all seasons.
