CCASLA MERIT AWARD FOR PLANNING 2007 Three Springs

DHM Design developed a landscape masterplan as a framework for tying the Three Springs community together. As part of that effort, monumentation, signage, and wayfinding elements were designed and implemented. DHM Design completed the design for the streetscape in the village core of Three Springs. The design incorporates recycled and reclaimed materials into the furnishings. Generous pedestrian spaces were set up along the storefronts with a number of outdoor cafes. Planter beds, pots, and raised boxes with xeric plantings were incorporated to add color and texture to the streetscape. A raised, free-flow pedestrian intersection and concrete crosswalks were used to enhance the pedestrian experience. The street was designed with back-in parking to facilitate a safer environment for vehicular and pedestrian users. With all of these elements in place, DHM hopes to create a healthy, vibrant, and safe village core for the Three Springs community.
