The City of Elsa Economic Development Corporation has tasked our team with developing a comprehensive signage program at major entrance points to the city. Our design incorporates modern materials like cor-ten steel and aluminum lettering with traditional cast stone trim and natural stone. Color changing lights add interest in the evening and make this a true landmark. Drought tolerant muhly grasses, agave, and succulents add the finishing touch. Welcome!
A premier South Texas school district requested a complete renovation of one of their early college high school campus. Currently the 2,200 students change classes, eat lunch, and socialize in a completely concrete environment. Our design concept is to integrate as many natural elements as possible. Stone patios with cell phone charging stations, a cor-ten steel clock tower, a hanging garden landmark sign, rain gardens, ephemeral streams, umbrella shades, tree groves, meadows, and pollinator gardens will be added. New entrance-way experiences will greet students, staff, and visitors. Lighting will add interest and expand the use of outdoor spaces at night. This project will be completed in 2019 with photos to follow in 2020.
