Saunders Office Building
Located in the Inverness Metropolitan Improvement District, the Saunders Office Building is dissected by a large concrete board formed wall. At the western edge of the site is a large modular block retaining wall with shrubs plantings and vines which grow both up the walls and cascades over the fronts.
The patio on the south side of the building is a focal point outside the building where the angles of the building are carried out into the landscape. The space is enclosed by smaller board-formed seat walls that match the larger board-formed accent wall of the building. Pocket spaces for tables and chairs surround a precast board-formed concrete fire pit and brick faced outdoor grill area. Honeylocust trees border the southern side of the patio creating shade in the summer.
Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus Courtyard Garden
At the Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus there are 7 core values which are followed when caring for the health of people in the community. These values are Compassion, Respect, Integrity, Spirituality, Stewardship, Imagination, and Excellence.
For the courtyard we kept these values in mind as we looked to create a space for both doctors, patients and all those working on the campus. Two designs were created which both incorporated water features, seating areas, and a playground area. Also taken into account was an area for building expansion on the south side of the courtyard. Perspectives and Color Plans were used to display the design to the client.
Homelake Military Veterans Cemetery
The planning process for creating the Homelake Military Veterans Cemetery master plan was a collaborative effort with input from the Homelake Veterans Center, (HVC), the Colorado Department of Human Services, History Colorado and members of the public who attended the public meetings.
The cemetery site, separated from roads and daily activities is a quiet place. Views from the site in nearly all directions are predominantly of natural areas and open space.
The 1.75 acre triangular site north of the existing cemetery was the selected location for the expansion. Based on site analysis, tt was the most appropriate location for the expansion due to its relationship to the existing cemetery, existing access via Patton Drive and available land.
The plan was developed from the beginning to recognize, embrace and respect the integrity of the existing cemetery. It currently provides for 192 cremation and 414 full size casket internment gravesites.
