Lake Grove Village
A European style shopping experience complete with restaurants, fresh produce, flowers and outdoor seating breathes new life into this 1960s era shopping center. Segments of the existing low-slung building were extracted to create pedestrian passageways that reconnect the previously disjointed site. These breezeways brim with year-round activity, encouraged by the light-filled overhead canopies, outdoor heating, and custom seating elements constructed from corten steel and salvaged glulam beams.
The addition of over 60 new trees and a stormwater basin that uses native plants to treat runoff has transformed the site which was previously characterized by a sea of parking. In addition to the adaptive reuse of the existing structure, other eco-conscious moves include the incorporation of ecoroofs, drought-tolerant plantings and the careful preservation of an iconic cedar tree.
