RND Awarded 2017 Durham Golden Leaf Award

RND Awarded 2017 Durham Golden Leaf Award

RND was recently presented with the People’s Choice 2017 Durham Golden Leaf Award for our renovation of Wrightwood Park.

The awards program honors excellence in design, preservation, and stewardship of the natural and  built environment. Eight winners were selected from the following categories; Adaptive Re-Use, Hearth & Home, Large Development, Small Development, Garden & Landscape, Keep Durham Beautiful, Sustainability, and People’s Choice.

Wrightwood Park is a small facility nestled in the woods of the Lakewood and Duke Forest neighborhoods in Durham. Prior to our design team’s intervention, the structure was dark and unsafe due to structural deterioration and obstructed sight lines. To correct these issues, our design team removed several of the shelter’s walls to create a more open and visible facility, constructed a new hipped roof, and updated it’s fixtures and finishes.

Our team was honored to receive the People’s Choice Award, which demonstrates the large impact of small improvements for our surrounding communities.
