Project Details

 

The 1900-acre master plan of Inspirada in Henderson, NV was originally designed on New Urbanism guidelines making it an entirely walkable environment. AndersonBaron was responsible for the trails master plan of the community, designing a system of interconnected trails encouraging residents to walk, run, or bike to many of the destinations in the 300+ acres of parks, open spaces, and trails.

In the center of the master plan, atop a high vantage point off Bicentennial Parkway, sits “The Overlook” – an unmanned educational kiosk, serving as a visitors center and a trail head showcasing information on the future of Inspirada. Adorned with over 200 species of plant material, The Overlook offers a beautiful example of how strategic plantings with a variety of color and texture will offer a beautiful landscape year-round in its arid desert environment.

The Overlook offers panoramic views of the community as it continues to be constructed, and enhances the user’s experience with the integrated Inspirada App for smartphones and tablets. This app uses geopositioning, internal compass, augmented reality, 3-D parallax, dynamic image rendering and animation to display fully realized parks, playgrounds, fitness facilities, signage, and neighborhoods in development. Once activated, the Inspirada App guides the users to see panoramic representation of what the community will become – from parks and neighborhood locations down to the details of blooming landscape! This new augmented technology will help current and future residents explore Inspirada from endless vantage points.
