Lorenc+Yoo’s Chinese work is featured in a new book entitled “The Landscape Design of Upscale Residential Communities.” The book contains a collection of over 80 upscale residential developments from around the world, including Lorenc+Yoo projects in Shenzhen and Guangzhou. Its large-format images highlight our award-winning designs for Opalus, Sky Praise, and Fish In The Garden. You may download a PDF file of the pages featuring these projects here.
After 25 years of collaboration on Ravinia, Hines engaged Lorenc+Yoo to rethink the Ravinia brand 25 years after our original design. Like the original design, the latest vision integrates the signage into the subtle modernism of Kevin Roche’s minimalistic site vision, adding a stronger street presence along Ashford Dunwoody Road in Atlanta. The use of glass, granite, and lighting allows passersby to get a taste of the design of the site, which is not visible from the street. The new design speaks of the renovation of the office complex, allowing the public to see something new from this Atlanta icon.
