Over 7,500 square feet of asphalt and unorganized parking were transformed into multiple outdoor rooms and gardens for the four buildings of the village to be utilize for church programming. Rocksalt concrete banding, decorative pavers, improved ADA access, garden seating, a shade trellis and decorative fence now create a space for the church to welcome in the community and entertain its parishioners. Locally quarried oolite block walls, coral stone pavers and various Florida native plantings were introduced to create an unifying identity for the church campus. An added street-front terrace and patio along SE 15th Avenue and natural oolite blocks were added as an outdoor study space for youth group programming at the Harbour. The design team worked with existing specimen gumbo limbos, live oaks and a stand of sabal palms to create an environment that blends with the natural hammock setting of the Colee Hammock neighborhood. The new courtyard is versatile in its appeal, providing an attractive corner amenity for neighbors to walk by and enjoy, as well as serving both intimate and large group church events.
