Subdivision - 85 Acres
Community Design & Regional Planning
Genesis prepared amenity plans for this 85 acre subdivision. The program elements included design of the following: community pool, recreation courts, restroom/service facility, parking/vehicular circulation, gazebo, entry sign, entry wall, and landscaping. The site components and architecture were designed to showcase a simple, but eclectic mix.
The final product is a marriage between Florida design reminiscent of the 1930ís and 1940ís and the dwelling typologies which are intended to be built within the subdivision. The "historical" concept is used to tie the entire project together. The ties are achieved by using site elements such as historic period lighting, detailed wood trims and columns, and the mixture of brick and limestone which can be found in the entry walls and signage. Seldom seen in typical residential development design is the utilization of plant material to frame specific views. The client insisted that the amenity center be the focus of the subdivision. Strategic placement and selection of plant material coupled with creative grading solutions gives the amenity center a sentinel-like quality.
