Draper Senior Center

G Brown Design worked closely with Salt Lake County, Draper City, EDA Architects, Aging Services and project consultants to develop a site design that meets LEED certification and the needs of the community. Project objectives were to provide a variety of activities, unify the landscapes of the new Senior Center with that of the existing library, and create connections to the adjacent Park and trail system. Native and adaptive plantings were used to conserve water and provide visual interest throughout the seasons. Amenities incorporated in the design include; courtyards, public art, bocce ball, pickleball courts, shuffleboard, horseshoe pits, orchard, and deck. As part of the design an existing creek and high water table on the project property was enhanced and utilized to a create a formal water fall feature and pond. A garden area with raised planters, seating areas, and grape covered fence provide opportunities for seniors with a “green thumb”. G Brown Design provided landscape design services from preliminary design through construction documents and construction period services.
