Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden
MTR led a team of architects and engineers to develop a master plan for what has become one of the great gardens of the Southeast. DSBG has steadily implemented this plan over the last two decades, with MTR as a frequent partner. Phase One consisted of a 20,000 sf visitor center, a new entrance road and parking, maintenance and production facilities, and the Perennial, Four Seasons, and Canal Gardens. The gardens have colorful planting in a framework of hedges and trees, enlivened with cooling fountains. Our design for the West Garden, a wedding and event space, features vine-covered pergolas and a white garden. We led the design team and designed the interior exhibits for the Orchid Conservatory, which has changing exhibits of orchids and tropicals.
