SPRING CREEK NATURE AREA PORTALS
Richardson | Texas

PRIME CONSULTANT | LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT : DCBA LANDSCAPE
ARCHITECTURE

ARTIST :   BRAD J. GOLDBERG

DCBA LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE, in collaboration with artist Brad Goldberg, has been selected to design two entry portals into one of the most significant public open spaces in North Central Texas. Located directly south of the Cityline development located at the intersection of Central Expressway and George Bush Turnpike, Spring Creek Nature Area is a green oasis in a burgeoning urban area of office, apartment, shops, and restaurant development. With much forethought and an interest in preserving a sustainable natural open space, the City of Richardson purchased an additional 57 acres along Renner Road to expand the existing 51-acre nature area. The two portals will provide access into the heavily wooded site and the unique experience and respite it will offer to the public. Existing trails within the preserve will be expanded to offer the opportunity for exercise and discovery.

The portals are meant to create a presence and awareness for Spring Creek Nature Area as well as an invitation to enter the amazing environment within. Designed of massive blocks of Kenoran Sage granite, Brad Goldberg has designed the portals with leaf-shaped openings and a drill-mark texture on the green tinted stone. Completion of the portals are anticipated in early 2019.

LAKEWOOD AT BROOKHOLLOW | Amenity Center
Prosper | Texas

Located on Highway 380 and Coit Road in the Town of Prosper, DCBA has completed the design for numerous amenities within the LAKEWOOD AT BROOKHOLLOW community, including a 10-acre private park, a future 20-acre public park with practice fields, and walking trail connecting to the Town’s master trail system.

Also included is the amenity center in which DCBA provided the site plan to include a resort-style pool with splash play area and a large deck available for year-round use by the residents. The building, designed by Gahl Architecture, will include a covered patio with outdoor fireplace and indoor fitness room.
