LIVE OAK TRAILS APARTMENTS
Live Oak Trails is a new multi-family Foundation Communities affordable housing project near the YMCA at Oak Hill. Studio Balcones collaborated with ACDDC on the overall site plan/site design, using the existing limestone ridge as a center point. Instead of burying this geological feature, we worked to make it central to the design, dividing the site into upper and lower landscape typologies with different geologic and soil conditions. This helped with the amount of grading needed for the site, and worked with the existing conditions for planting choices. Studio Balcones also performed site permitting, grading, hardscape design, amenities and playground design, and planting design services.
