Crescent Pond & Crescent Park Port of Los Angeles
K & A provided landscape architectural designs for the Crescent Pond and its surrounding bio-swale areas. The designs included conceptual designs, working drawings, and as-built plans. Kammeyer also provided field observations services for project construction, assuring proper implantation of bio-swale designs and placement.
Working as the projects lead consultant to Port of Los Angeles, K & A provided a conceptual plan to complete the Crescent Park project. The conceptual plan was prepared following a public workshop facilitated by Kammeyer and Associates. The conceptual plan provided an open-space turf area and overflow parking for waterfront areas while maintaining views for the surrounding community.
Construction documents prepared per Port of Los Angeles standards were prepared using a diverse design team assembled from the Port’s on-call list. The K & A team included, DCA Civil Engineering Group, Selbert Perkins Design Group, Katz, Okitsu and Associates, and Reed Corp Engineers.
Dos Lagos, Corona CA
Kammeyer & Associates created a Landscape Master Plan and working drawings with a focus of designing a shopping atmosphere and utilizing a water wise landscape. Design elements included plazas and circulation areas meant to emulate citrus leaves and fruit, tying the project to the agricultural history of Corona.
The master plan for the Dos Lagos Heart Lakes was inspired by Corona’s “Historic Grand Blvd”. The design is framed with a symbolic circular walkway that is lined with California Pepper Trees and Palms. An outdoor amphitheater is located by the Lakes providing an elegant backdrop for performances. Spanning the lakes is a bamboo arbor designed by renowned Architect Norberto Nardi. The pathway it contains looks out over the lakes and provides hidden views of the flower gardens. Extending out from the gardens is a linear ‘Citrus Walkway’, symbolic of Corona’s “Lemon Capital of the World” heritage. Demonstration of innovative low flow/drip irrigation systems throughout the landscape is a prime example of sustainable design by Kammeyer & Associates.
Learning Center, Cucamonga Valley Water District
In this unique opportunity, K & A designed educational gardens that were ADA accessible and demonstrated sustainable landscape design principles. The gardens target third and fourth grade students and focus on the extensive use of Water Wise plant palettes including Mediterranean plants, Native Habitats, fire safe landscapes, and edible landscapes. Other design principles include the demonstration of innovative low flow/drip irrigation systems and advanced irrigation control methods.
Ingalls Park Equestrian Center, City of Norco
K & A is currently nearing completion of a Master Planned Equestrian Facility for the City of Norco. Ingalls Park is a regional park used for many large local events as well as National Equestrian Events. The park is already a landmark in the City of Norco and K & A has helped the city envision the full potential of the site. Project design development and research began in June of 2006 and has consisted of Community facilitated meetings, continuing research, in depth site analysis, cost analysis, and continuing design development. K & A has throughout the design process provided multi-media interactive design sessions with city staff and focus groups.
Navajo Nation Veterans Memorial
General Holdings, Inc. , The Canyons - Bakersfield, CA
The Canyons is a 1,000 acre residential project perched on a mesa overlooking the Kern River in Bakersfield, California. Kammeyer and Associates was involved with the initial planning of the project, working to, among other things, locate a park at the center of the site to act as a hub of community connection. The central park is designed as a jumping off point for a system of pedestrian and equestrian trails that spread out through the project, connecting ultimately to the City’s comprehensive trail plan. One of our goals was to provide all homeowners the opportunity to access the hiking and biking trails from their neighborhoods, giving them the feeling that the surrounding open space was just out their front door. Work on this development for the General Holdings Company is ongoing for the Kammeyer team.
March Joint Powers Authority, Riverside County Sports Walk of Fame
Recently, J.A. Russo Enterprise Inc., in association with the March Joint Powers Authority, asked Kammeyer & Associates to provide a pedestrian “bridge” through the Meridan Commercial Development at March Air Force Base that would link the proposed March Air Force Base Metrolink Station and Sports Park. The minimal twenty-four width of the parking lot island and its length offered up a challenge for K & A. Our solution was to create a series of outdoor “rooms” that would serve as ever-changing museum-type displays. Each room would honor four Riverside County sports figures with baseball card-like posters. In addition to featuring past personalities, local Riverside County high schools would have the opportunity to create posters for their own “Players of the Week”. The concept has been approved by the March Joint Powers Authority and is currently in design development.
Mira Loma, Old Town Project
Our involvement in the Mira Loma Old Town project was from the beginning. John Russo Development commissioned K & A to envision a new retail development located in Mira Loma, California. Our task was to create a community atmosphere that harkened back to the downtown gathering experience that characterized small towns in years gone by. To do so, K & A pushed the buildings to the street edge and proposed an outward focused street scene with turn-of–the-century storefronts that would embrace the surrounding community. Parking areas were to be hidden from street view behind the structures. The interior of the project was designed to offer space for visitors to gather and mingle amidst fountains, plazas, and tree covered alleys.
City of Lynwood Projects
Over the years Kammeyer and Associates has completed many conceptual design projects, both for the City of Lynwood, and in the City. Of those, our plans for the Imperial Highway Median, the picnic area restoration at Lynwood City Park, and T he Market Place come to mind as actually installed. Other projects, such as, the following, never moved beyond the planning stages: Dymally Park Fiesta Plaza; Lynwood Middle School; Imperial Triangle (at Imperial Highway and Norton Avenue); Port of California (under the 105 Freeway); Caesar Chavez Memorial at Lynwood City Park, Lynwood Civic Center Campus at Martin Luther King Boulevard and Bullis Road, Hosler Elementary School Entry. Following are renderings of some of our work for the City of Lynwood.
