The undulating, gentle curves of electromagnetic and soundwaves were used in this design to reflect both the history and future of this unique site, a former ham radio supply store. Ecological and aesthetic principles guided every aspect of the design and plant selection, resulting in an inviting ground level and rooftop garden that supports human health, biodiversity, and ecological health year-round.
