Seabreeze Senior Living

San Diego, CA

Bowman planned and designed the landscape for the 139-unit senior housing project, which includes 10 casita homes. The 10-acre site in the Carmel Valley community of San Diego repurposes an existing equestrian center into a residential care facility.

Bowman’s goal was to create a sustainable setting using drought-tolerant plants and low water use irrigation systems. Tree-lined trails provide shady walks while integrating the new community into the existing suburban fabric. The landscape plan enhances building entrances with textured paving, colorful plantings and seating areas. Three courtyards and patios are themed with seat walls, special paving, unique plantings, water features and deep seating areas.

The landscape also includes screening to buffer adjacent single-family homes, a campus setting, and spaces that encourage social interaction.
