Designing with the Neighborhood

Alamo Architects has a cherished tradition of pitching in on community efforts. So, when the opportunity arose to collaborate with neighbors to rescue a nearby urban garden, we got on board!

Working with local arts leader Andy Benavides (through non-profit, Briscoe Elementary School, and Southtown community, we organized resources and volunteers to refurbish the neglected garden at nearby St. Henry Catholic Church. With creative teamwork, the space was transformed into a public garden area, with a new greenhouse and kid-friendly landscaping. A bright flower mural, designed (and painted!) by Briscoe Elementary 5th grader Satori Hernandez, creates a showstopping focal point and sends a message of optimism for the future.

At grand opening, enthusiastic neighbors gathered to celebrate this team effort. To everyone who provided the seeds to help our community grow – local teachers and students thank you!
