Magic Oaks Ranch - USA
For this project, United designers were hired by one of our many partner designers. We were asked to do an initial consultation and site assessment. This included a plant list of existing and potential production plants, a climate and ecological data table to understand the environmental context, and a base map to begin the concept and process of design solutions.
The farm was surrounded by a diverse habitat that extended into wetlands and a large lake and many ponds. The priorities were invasive species management and restoration of lost understory native plant communities. A new residence was added and also integrated into the new systems to conserve energy and water resources.
