Best Green Space Project
Sister Cities Discovery Garden Improvements
This project, inspired by Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Valley, provides visitors—especially children—with winding pathways, scalable rocks, and a meandering stream that connect natural elements with the man-made environments surrounding them. Boulder stones and wood elements were locally sourced. Workers’ craftsmanship is showcased in the hand-carved and placed stones and the woodwork and IPE Coping details in the play areas. The sensory-friendly twig nest was designed and woven with timber and children’s safety in mind. Regular on-site meetings including the Owner, Architects, and Subcontractors ensured that the landscaping was installed as “naturally” as possible to mimic the outdoors.
