A xeriscape Garden has been revealed for the new Gucci bespoke flagship store in Dallas, TX. Perched within the southwest corner of the CenterPark, the garden adds 5,000 square feet of communal space for both Gucci’s new store and NorthPark Center patrons.
The garden for Gucci’s new bespoke flagship store at NorthPark Center is a lush xeriscape that expresses the brand’s commitment to nature through a water-wise planting palette. Yuccas, Century Plants, and Hesperoaloes are nested within a bed of Mexican Feather Grass mixed with other drought-tolerant ornamental grasses and perennials.
The Gucci Garden establishes a dialogue with the architectural facade by mirroring its modularity and proportions onto the ground plane and, at the same time, disrupting them with an organic but structured planting design. The garden also features two modular cast stone benches within a plane of crushed stone that responds to the materiality and hues of the storefront. The Gucci Garden is a multifunctional space designed to incorporate the flexibility of hosting exclusive events but also allowing patrons a moment to be inspired by Gucci’s iconic window displays and the views of the Nasher’s Family Contemporary Art Collection.
