One of the last remnant parks displaying the historic art-deco architecture in Sunny Isles, this oceanfront park in the heart of the city required a new functional design sensitive to its historic elements and the natural ecology of the area.
C+R is proud to unveil our design for this new park in Hialeah, Florida! Hialeah Cultural Park is envisioned to be a lush tropical park tucked into a quiet urban community. The neighborhood has little to no existing public space amenities, so the City of Hialeah working with FPL (Florida Power and Light) found a creative way to provide much needed green space. The land, donated by FPL, is an existing FPL transmission right-of-way currently not accessible to the public. Our design team including engineers RJ Behar and Associates worked with FPL to create a park which fits the functional requirements of a transmission right-of-way while providing a meandering path through rich vegetation for people to stroll and learn about the rich history of Hialeah.
C+R is excited to show the sneak peak preview of the newly completed green roof we designed in collaboration with HOK at the New Miami Dade Children’s Courthouse. The drought tolerant plant materials are planted in soft curvy beds reminiscent from above of the patterns and textures created in the Everglades by slowly moving water.
