Design Intent

Create a welcoming plaza for the historic Doylestown Fountain House that accommodates both visitors and residents. Improve pedestrian connections to and from plaza. Integrate sustainable stormwater design. Use sensorial elements to create a memorable experience for plaza users. Improve street corridor with street trees, stormwater planters, and onstreet parking.

Design Features

Fountain House stormwater is collected in downspout basins and transported through recycled cobble runnels into stormwater planters. Fixed boulders and removable seating provide versatile and unique elements for plaza visitors. Raised intersection draws people safely into the plaza. Fountains allow people to interact with the water while creating iconic features commemorating the former historic fountains.

Design
This campus entrance bed, inspired by seasonal color, uses plantings that create warm and cool color masses that can be enjoyed by both pedestrians and drivers. Central to the design is a winding band of grasses, swaying amongst the rigid forms of the shrubs and carrying your eye through the entire composition.

The Gilbert House Center for sustainability is located on the Temple Ambler Campus. Its purpose, reflected in its design, is to provide visitors with an educational example of residential sustainability. Working with the existing woodland, the planting palette consists of native meadow grasses, perennials and ferns. Winding boardwalks give visitors an above view of the planted woodland and meadow. Garden plots and an outdoor classroom adds an interactive and educational aspect for students and community members to take part in.

Buckingham, Pennsylvania, once a quaint cross roads town, has in recent years fallen victim to urban sprawl and heavy arterial traffic. The redesign incorporates elements of Transit Oriented Development and neotraditional town layout. The master plan includes a restructuring of major arterials, emphasis on a commercial core, walkable neighborhoods, and a green space system linked by recreational trails.

Design

The Francisville Infill Project aims to revitalize the historic Francisville neighborhood in Central Philadelphia. Emphasis is placed on reestablishing the v l f o s ho h a Ridge Avenue commercial corridor and creating an arts district corresponding w the city’s Avenue of the Arts program. Introduction of street trees, d t s e g with u f a e r bio-retention areas, green roofs, and community gardens advocate sustainab ity. In addition the design includes a network of integrated parks and open o r sa bil d e c d spaces connecting important landmarks and city locations. A local farmers market and a neighborhood vineyard program promotes community activity r a e d eg and celebrates the neighborhoods history as the site for William Penn’s origina vineyards. b d t s g al

Design

Bryn Mawr Corner is a mixed use commercial and office building complex with rear parking and a front public plaza. The plaza accommodates s x fc u h n e pedestrian flow and plaza users with ample seating and space for performances and small activities. The flow of water, emphasized in the swirling e e t g e o es e . e z n r n concrete pattern, is the central theme to the design. Water from the plaza and rooftops is collected in a curved pipe drain and carried to the center e g z ro p t p circular planter. In addition to collecting and infiltrating rainwater, the center plan er also includes a misting water feature during the summer months. ne o e nte d
