Keller Town Hall and Open Space Master Plan

The Municipal offices of Keller were growing as fast as the community.  Working with Beck Architecture, Phillips designed a town center plaza with a large fountain as a focal. 

Surrounding the new Keller Town Hall was a series of lakes, pedestrian trails, amphitheater, and rock waterfalls.  We provided the civil engineers with grading plans that not only solved a drainage problem but also enhanced the overall landscape design. 

Terraced grading was developed between the Town Hall and lake to create a setting for the architecture and maximize usable open space around the Town Hall. 

The lakes were designed by Phillips as an amenity to the community and to provide the needed fill material to raise the Town Hall out of the flood plain.  An elaborate system of concrete hike & bike trails linked the community residence to the town hall and retail shopping.  Many existing trees were saved due to Phillips’ team grading solutions.
