2700 Sand Hill Road

Location: Silicon Valley

Project Type:

Size: 2 acres

Partners: Ford Land Company


PGAdesign redeveloped the Silicon Valley office park landscape of Sand Hill Road, modernizing the 1960s-era park. PGAdesign preserved the site’s natural assets, including groves of mature oak, pine, and redwood trees, reshaping them into a series of courtyard spaces that correspond with the needs of the modern office space. The hardscape design drew from modern forms and materials and the existing two- and three-story brick and wood buildings. The landscape introduced formal elements at entryways, and simplified native and Mediterranean plantings elsewhere.

PGAdesign collaborated closely with the project’s wayfinding consultant, establishing a theme of natural materials and modern graphics that conversed with the original architecture. The addition of a central plaza, building directories, and signage monuments enhanced wayfinding. Outdoor amenities were designed for employees’ informal meetings and dining, as well as to provide overall identity.
