Salt Lake City Fire Station No. 14 is first Net Zero Fire Station in the county, and is anticipating to meet LEED Gold certification. G Brown Design was able take the architectural goals of efficiency, resiliency, and sustainability and integrate the same principles into the surrounding landscape.
G Brown Design worked with Salt Lake County to help create a unique landscape design incorporated with natural rock features and sculptural elements that become a focal point in the landscape.
G Brown Design worked closely with the client to create this Landscape Master Plan. The client desired to incorporate the natural surrounding landscape into the design through these following design elements:
- 0.56 Acre Lake
- Bio Meadow Turf Sod
- Custom Dock
- Zip-Line with Resilient (Soft Fall) Surfacing
- Custom Elevated Play Fort
- Large Fire Pit Stone Patio
- Hardy and Deer Resistant Plants
- Entry Gate
- Lighting on Stone Columns
G Brown Design developed a few concepts before coming to a final master plan and construction documents that included site, grading, planting, and irrigation design. The use of existing mature trees and a natural plant palette paired with a half acre lake and beach creates an outdoor experience that fits well within the high mountain environment.
