About This Project

Creating an interesting focal point for this collage of commercial buildings, which share a common courtyard in downtown Darien CT, was the challenge. The idea presented was to create a fountain/basin area as a gathering point for shoppers. Cardello Architects went one step further adding fire to the equation, as well as cast and limestone elements, along with custom bronze work. The interesting aspect of the project is that the fountain runs all year round, so the technical challenges of keeping the plumbing working during the winter months had to be addressed.
