Artesia Veterans Memorial Plaza

Location: Artesia, NM

Completed: 2013

with JMZ Arquitectos

MRWM created the design for the renovation of the Veterans Memorial Plaza and Park in downtown Artesia, adjacent to two MRWM streetscape renovation projects. The integration of the design with the existing streetscape creates a seamless transition between the downtown street and the park, and is aimed at strengthening the city center and further defining sense of place in the city.  MRWM was responsible for hardscape, planting, and irrigation design. 

The site is located between the existing City Hall and the site of a future City Hall annex building and is part of the Artesia Main Street Renovation and Texas & 2nd Streetscape Renovation. MRWM worked closely with the City of Artesia’s Community Development Department to ensure that the design met the City’s vision.
