Seasons 52 Santa Monica Blvd
Living Walls

Los Angeles, CA, USA
173 sf Greenwalls


Project Description & Details

Seasons 52 is a fresh grill and wine bar that invites guests to discover the sensational flavors of a seasonally-inspired menu and award-winning international wine list in a casually-sophisticated ambiance. The Seasons 52 Santa Monica Blvd menu in Los Angeles is orchestrated by award-winning Chef Clifford Pleau who envisioned a living chef’s garden growing right inside the restaurant.

Designed by GreenScaped Buildings with the help of Plant-TecH2O, a custom system was built using Architectural Supplements planter trays mounted on a grid panel and retrofitted with a hard-plumbed irrigation system. The glass-enclosed controlled environment has supplemental lighting to support the growth of 125 types of culinary herbs including basil, thyme and oregano. Chefs and bartenders now utilize this 61 sf interior edible garden frequently adding a fragrant mix to food and beverages. GreenScaped Buildings also designed and installed a 112 sf exterior living wall on the wraparound patio overlooking Santa Monica Boulevard. The outdoor showpiece living wall features 36 modules containing a combination of greenery including Asian Jasmine, Mondo grass, and Lemon Button Ferns.
