St. Stephens Moody Walk
Snaking through the center of a 100-acre campus in the Texas Hill Country, this campus greenway converted ragged roadways and eroded hillsides into a scenic pedestrian corridor. Completed in four phases over twenty years, the project connects all parts parts of campus while harnessing the rush of stormwater down the hill.
Site conditions before:
New Topfer Theater at Zach Scott
Landmark 400-seat theatre designed by Andersson Wise Architects just south of downtown Austin, funded by a public private partnership. Five on-site rain gardens filter water entering Ladybird Lake by using native plantings to treat the first inch of rainfall runoff from parking lots & building. Extensive streetscape improvements create pedestrian traffic and connect the theatre to downtown, public transit and an adjacent waterfront park.
2nd Street District Streetscape
Conversion of 14 block faces of 2nd Street in downtown Austin to a pedestrian-dominant street, with generous sidewalks, street trees, special paving, site furnishings and public art. Resource Design served as the local consultant to prime firm CWDG (Boston) for design and construction documents.
St. Stephen's Tennis Center
Layout of 14-court tennis center takes advantage of the hilly site by arranging the courts on naturally occurring terraces, settling the facility unobtrusively into the landscape and offering spectacular views. Seat walls of quarried native limestone provide spectator viewing in lieu of 4-foot retaining walls. Native plantings reflect the surrounding landscape and provide natural drainage ways.
