Valle de oro 

Surroundings leading the design of the external environs as the landscape architect for the new Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge Visitor’s Center. This is the Southwest’s first urban wildlife refuge, and we are honored to be collaborating with @formativearchitecture, Weddle Gilmore Black Rock Studio, and @biohabitats on this important project for New Mexico. A new visitor’s center and demonstration wetland will overlook the wildlife refuge, and will give visitors and the surrounding communities a world class educational event facility for the region. Stay tuned as this project develops. The project is planned to begin construction in 2019 and is a design build project lead by Brycon Construction and CF Padilla.
