The HLA Group worked closely with the client to develop the overall project theme of “Santa Barbara Spanish” for this 300+ acre, nine village community of merchant builder and custom home lots nestled among groves of existing oak trees. Services included the design of the main gated entry with pilasters and guardhouse, large detention pond, streetscapes, open space corridors and mitigation areas. This project showcases a high-level of design through the use of colorful mosaic tiles, custom metalwork, Spanish tiled pilasters and textured stucco walls. This theme was further reinforced through the selection of plant material. Additionally, The HLA Group provides support to the community home owners association (HOA) in the on-going review of homeowner landscape plan submittals.
