WORKSHOP8 provided site planning, schematic housing design, branding and identity design, and community engagement support services. We were fortunate to work with our trusted consultant JVA on the project and also worked with first time teammates, DHM, Millender White, Trestle Strategy Group, Urban Oasis, and Place/Matters.
The scope of work included intensive community outreach and WORKSHOP8 incorporated several successful community engagement design tools including low-tech, high-touch exercises such as the hand crafted wish wall, interactive site plan map, mix-and match materials cards, and architectural style cards in addition to technology based exercises such as fly-through 3-D modeling and live electronic polling. WORKSHOP8 also developed several stakeholder questionnaires which were implemented to gain community input into architectural styles and amenities. All of the community input was funneled into the schematic design of the buildings and the preliminary site plan. WORKSHOP8 staff really leaned into the project and pulled extra hours to complete the entire outreach and schematic design process in just two months time.
