Outdoor Design Group Unveils a New Online Portfolio

If you have visited our website anytime over the last year, you may have notice that the “portfolio” tab led to an innocuous page that didn’t have much to offer.

Well, after putting a great deal of time into formatting the images and debating the merits of several layout options, the Outdoor Design Group Portfolio has finally been revealed:

As with each of our websites, this was designed in-house.  We looked at several ways to display images before settling on a simple black background and clusters of images.  The main goal was to have something that showed off our work, yet was simple to navigate and that loaded quickly without the use of a spacial image viewer or flash.

We approached this design challenge by using many of the same principles we use to approach landscape design:

  • Eliminate clutter, keeping the design simple and elegant, less is more
  • Make the design functional and practical first, then integrate form
  • Imagine and anticipate how the user will interact with, experience, and move through the space

The main portfolio page shows an example of our diverse areas of design work.  By clicking on “Residential”, “Land Development”, or “Site Renovations”, you are able to move into a separate portfolio section that displays each respective type of work.

I would love to hear what you think – Do you think this layout and navigation works well?

Outdoor Design Group Moves into Olde Town Arvada Office

We are very excited to have moved into the Jehn Center in Olde Town Arvada.  Our new address is 5690 Webster Street, Arvada, CO  80002.  We have been in the new office location for about 3 weeks, and are loving the new surroundings.  It took a lot of work to pack up everything and make the move, while in the midst of the middle of summer with dozens of projects in full swing!

Below are some example graphics we are doing for of one of the many exciting new projects we are working on, a resort near Cape Coral, Florida.

Needless to say, I have been slacking on making new blog posts lately.  But please stay tuned as I have a ton of ideas for new articles full of great tips and ideas!

Outdoor Design Group Photo Simulations

I was recently discussing a project with a client and they were unaware that we had the capability to do photo simulations showing what a proposed project would look like.  This can be a valuable tool for visualizing a design, as well as being useful to show planning commissions, city councils, and the public what the impact of a new project or site renovation will be.

Below are two examples of “quick and dirty” photo simulations that we recently completed on fast turnaround schedules.  We also have the capability in our office to do larger and much more detailed and elaborate simulations, as well as 3D graphics through a talented outside consultant.  If you are looking for an effective way to communicate your design concept this may be a great solution- just give us a call!

Below is a conceptual site plan graphic for a new assisted living / memory care facility that we are currently working on in the metro Denver area:

The project includes extensive therapy gardens and many interesting site features for the residents and their families.  Site design for elderly and special needs users presents many unique design challenges and opportunities.

This plan is conceptual and subject to change.  I will provide more images and details about the project after the design and construction are completed.
