Edgestone Amenities Center

Client: Hines
Collaboration: TBG Partners
Location: Frisco, Texas
Construction Budget: $100,000 – $250,000
Completion Date: 2016

The Edgestone at Legacy is a 307-acre master planned community project undertaken by Hines in west Frisco, just 20 minutes north of Dallas.  TBG Partners, the prime consultant on the project, partnered with Earthscape to deliver a natural play space for the brand new amenities center.

Earthscape collaborated and engaged with TBG Partners during the schematic design phase, resulting in a series of hand-sketch alternatives for an iconic play space that would evoke subtle memories of unstructured play in the woods.  The project came to life in three-dimensions as conversations continued through design development and 3D models were rendered.  The details of the log tower, log jam® and wood sculpture were finessed during the construction-drawing phase and the vision realized in fabrication.

The playground features several ‘pods’ – areas of depressed elevation that feature a custom play element.  As visitors enter the park, they are met with an abstract playable wood sculpture.  An enormous log jam® connects to a multi-level log tower reaching 20 feet high and accessible by net climbers.  The log jam® and tower incorporate simple, organic forms that bring forest-play to life.
