A Clear Vision for San Diego’s Landscape

McCullough Landscape Architecture is featured in the current issue of the San Diego Downtown News. The article by Delle Willett, a veteran journalist known for her reporting on conservation and the environment, begins with the short version of the firm’s history. More importantly, she writes about the firm’s vision — designing sustainable, living environments where people live, work, study and play. David, the firm’s principal landscape architect and Catherine, president of the firm, form a powerhouse of energy and commitment to the built environment.

“I believe our staff, led by my husband, can make an impact on our built environment and am happy to support in making our community a better place.”

An Outdoor Vibe That Stimulates Creativity

McCullough recently completed landscape design for The Oberlin, a progressive office campus that connects the indoors to the outdoors. The work done for this space supports our vision of designing user-oriented landscapes. The 62,400 SF office complex is comprised of three buildings and features roll-up doors that open to outdoor patios. There we created unique spaces where people can hold meetings, have lunch or just take a break from work.

The site was primarily a parking lot, yet the client wanted the individual suites of the building to have their own outdoor amenity, and include a common space for the property. We addressed this by creating outdoor rooms with plant material that divided the space with greenery and hedge walls, creating individual personalities for each space.”
