Montalvo Arts Center & Sculpture Garden

Location: Saratoga


Located on 175-acres of dramatic surroundings, the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, California, was founded in 1912 as a private villa and was subsequently transformed into an artist residency in 1939.  The Center has since developed into a world-class organization providing creative programs, events, performances, and experiences in an inspired environment.

Faced with its second century of existence, the Center retained PGAdesign to develop a Landscape Master Plan that carefully studies and provides a framework the property for future growth. PGAdesign also completed Phase I documentation for refinements to the Great Lawn, a location that serves large-scale events. PGAdesign’s projects are careful to balance the site’s remarkable history with the Center’s programmatic needs as a contemporary, modern environment for the arts and creative exploration.
