October 2018 117 Independence Beer Garden Philadelphia, Pa. Groundswell transformed a nondescript garden alongside the Dow Building's 6th Street frontage for Philadelphia restaurateur, Michael Schulson, into a lively gathering place for the city. Heavy steel girders rise amidst shady trees, delicate flowers, and lush shrubbery, setting the atmosphere for this American style beer garden. Visitors don't have to sit at the traditional long table to drink their beers— they can also relax in Adirondack chairs amid fire pits or play table tennis and enjoy the distinct atmosphere of the American summer. Talula's Garden, Philadelphia, Pa. Groundswell transformed both the interior and exterior space of a former Washington Square restaurant into the lush, magical Talula's Garden. A pergola made from reclaimed structural timbers helps define the formal brick and bluestone courtyard. Custom-designed barn wood window boxes fill the space with flowers and a water feature of vintage faucet heads adds an air of whimsy.
