Douglas Gates Project Overview
Serving the newly envisioned Douglas & Gates Elementary School as a primary commuting connection for students and families from the Indian Hills area, this newly reconstructed boardwalk aims to provide a safe, comfortable, and scenic journey. Staying aligned to some existing amenities over the adjacent wetland ponds, the boardwalk coasts just above the habitat’s vegetation complete with a metal roof rising above the path to protect pedestrians from the elements. A palette of warm grays with pops of a golden brown deck mimic the new school’s innovative & aesthetic presence. A sleek linear composition of horizontal handrail with wire rope and pedestrian curb flow alongside families as they wind through the wetlands with fluidity. The vision of the Decero™ Design Team was to complement the level of detail put into the revolutionary design of the Douglas & Gates School while maintaining a simplistic modern appeal that will remain resilient in the natural elements surrounding it and for all of the future families crossing it.
