Brilliance Lighting Award !

325 Kent Ave is a residential building that is part of the larger Domino Sugar site being developed by Two Trees Management, Inc. The building has a noticeable ‘hole’ in the center- a playful nod to the ubiquitous ‘Sugar’ donut. The building was designed by Ismael Levya Architects, while the interiors were developed by Leeser Architecture. Blondie’s Treehouse, Inc built all three main exterior amenity spaces.

The Courtyard is 9900 SF. A central, rectilinear dry-bed leads through a random planting of large Shade trees, ferns and perennials and ends at a blackened steel water feature. The water spills into a reflecting pool that features a 12’ tall sandstone sculpture by Lluis Lleo. Two thirty foot built-in benches flank the deck that surrounds the end of the reflecting pool.

National Accounts Program Project Spotlight

Blondie’s National Program has recently installed a interiorscape design at an upscale shopping mall located in the suburbs of Minneapolis, MN. 44 new Fiberglass Decorative Tapered Square Planters were placed throughout the mall, all with a coordinating bronze finish and 175 live plants in such varieties as Dracaena Limelight, Dracaena Lemon-Lime and Aglaonema Silver-Bay were brought in and placed in groupings for a cohesive and streamlined design. 21 custom planter inserts for the Food Court were fitted with over 215 Square Feet of 18″ Preserved Prairie Grass. The grasses were selectively hand-pruned after the installation to insure that the grasses did not flop over or impede on diners. The overall effect is a simple, clean design that unifies the food court, providing both privacy and aesthetic appeal.
