Denver Botanic Gardens Campus and Streetscapes
Mundus Bishop collaborated with Denver Botanic Gardens from 2008 through 2014 in the redesign of the 24-acre urban public garden. Our new campus and streetscape designs create a cohesive campus that expands the ‘garden’ experience through re-purposing spaces, materials and features. The new campus integrates green, sustainable practices, and adds new plantings, plazas, and pedestrian crossings that enhance the visitor experience. The new Welcome Garden, Visitor Center and streetscape offers a new front door where visitors are greeted by a vibrant garden with a characteristic palette of native Colorado sandstone walls and architectural concrete. Sustainability goals are met with living ‘green’ walls, integrated infrastructure, a green roof, and native, hardy plantings.
