Optima Kierland Center is a 9.5-acre mixed-use residential development located in Phoenix. The architecture is a 21st century urban solution to residential design. The vibrant undulating façade with perforated panels and sunscreening louvers creates shade and shadows, voids and textures. The vertical landscaping system provides sun protection and privacy to each unit. This innovative system with self-containing irrigation and drainage enables a palette of vibrantly colored plants to grow up and over the edge of each floor of the building.
