VIASAT CAFÉ COURTYARD
VDLA designed all landscape architectural features for the ViaSat Café and Courtyard improvements in Carlsbad, CA. The central focal point of the space is an outdoor dining patio shaded by a sail cloth and a specimen Sycamore tree. The patio features a BBQ, two fire pit features, built-in seating and a bar height counter. Artificial turf provides a bright green yet water-wise flex space that can accommodate lawn games and seating for all-hands meetings. Situated throughout the landscape are “mini-garden rooms” with a variety of outdoor furnishings. Planting schemes emphasized contrast in color and texture. Two competition level volleyball courts and a basketball court are located behind the café building, offering active recreation. An herb garden feature is currently being developed for use by culinary staff.
