During the initial phase of the Unity of Phoenix’s campaign to create a greater level of service, beauty, and connectedness to the greater community, AndersonBaron was commissioned to help “beautify” and uplift the surrounding landscape. This included improvements and expansion of the courtyard and plaza areas, and transforming a previously vacant portion of their site into a large open space event lawn area for outdoor gathering, activities, and worship. Our goal was to create an overall site hardscape and landscape master plan that complemented the character of the existing and planned facilities, creating a welcoming environment for current and new members as well as launching the ministry into a focal point of the community it serves.

We analyzed and made recommendations on renovations, enhancements, and upgrade options for multi-functional space in the existing plazas, and were able to salvage and repurpose many of the site’s existing trees to offer additional shaded seating areas throughout the new courtyard and plaza design. Multiple intimate courtyards with aesthetic fountains and raised planters were utilized to foster a greater connection between the users and the outside environment. The expansive event lawn offers multiple uses; from weddings to outside places for worship, family, and community events all beneath the scenic mountainous views. The event lawn area is bookended by a stunning stone amphitheater stage to the north and an open-air fireplace with ample seating to the south.

All elements within the newly renovated exterior areas of the campus have symbolic notions to the ever evolving and forward moving spiritual journey. From the prayer garden, the Gratitude Labyrinth, the Fountain of Faith, and the main gate entrance that acts as a “Positive Pathway”, congregants will feel welcomed and nurtured as they participate in activities to feed their mind, body, and spirit.
