This artwork is functional and architecturaly enhancing and adds a unique and playful artistic sensibility to the design of the gates and the dining terrace guardrails of the Edgemont Senior Living residence. The design of the brightly coloured work is inspired by stylized, abstracted braches and birds and can be viewed from within the residence as well as from the street. Together, the tree branches and birds symbolize the cultivation of life and home within a nurturing and stable natural habitat.
