Artesia Veterans Memorial Plaza

Location: Artesia, NM

Completed: 2013

with JMZ Arquitectos

MRWM developed schematic design through Construction Documents for renovation of a civic park and plaza in downtown Artesia. MRWM integrated the design with adjacent existing streetscape design in order to create a seamless transition between the downtown streetscape and the park.  The project site is located between the existing City Hall and a future City Hall annex building.  MRWM was responsible for hardscape, planting, and irrigation design.  The project is adjacent to two MRWM streetscape renovation projects in downtown Artesia: Artesia Main Street Renovation and Texas & 2nd Streetscape Renovation and is aimed at strengthening the city center and further defining sense of place in Artesia. MRWM worked closely with the City of Artesia’s Community Development Department to ensure the design met the City’s vision.
