honoring heritage,
celebrating community

Harvest. The romance of a pastoral lifestyle combined with the comfort and convenience of modernity. A celebration of community, camaraderie and bountiful abundance. Conceived through a multidisciplinary workshop rooted in a shared vision, Harvest honors the land’s agrarian heritage — a centrally located 5-acre farm yields ample produce for the weekly farmers’ market, and community garden plots let residents exercise their green thumbs — combined with progressive planning and design principles.

The community framework prioritizes the pedestrian and features a prominent greenway spine connecting community destinations. Roads terminate on this central greenway and pocket parks are central to each distinct neighborhood. Harvest was one of 13 projects selected for the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s 2017 Case Study Investigation (CSI) program, which documents the benefits of exemplary landscape projects.

connecting nature to
urban sensibility

The Canals at Grand Park incorporates a compact urban form with heightened walkability — uncommon in rapidly growing Frisco, Texas — and was shaped through diverse stakeholder interaction to shape the guiding vision.

A series of distinctive canals organize the community, provide graceful character and facilitate effective stormwater conveyance — while delivering an engaging pedestrian experience.

navigating rugged terrain
with a unified vision

Deeply sloping terrain presents challenges — but also uniqueness, views and opportunities — and the Canyon in Oak Cliff responds with aplomb to provide a remarkable lifestyle experience. In-depth analysis informed a synergistic charrette process uniting diverse stakeholders. The guiding vision overcomes the site challenges to create a vibrant mixed-use community. The result is a singular destination in south Dallas.

hill country sanctuary

Wolf Ranch is a celebration of the Wolf family, which lived in central Texas for generations, and the thoughtful development of its most pristine parcel located along the San Gabriel River in Georgetown. The 755-acre tract was cherished and carefully preserved by the Wolf family for years — it’s a scenic Hill Country setting where the Wolf families grew up, swam in the creeks, shared memories in tree houses and shared first kisses under majestic oaks.

Developing this beloved land delicately was a tall task, and the team — design, planning and engineering professionals, family members, community members, a scientist — took the utmost care to preserve those sacred spaces and honor those family stories. The result is a modern Hill Country sanctuary in which the community is an extension of the Wolf family.
