Capitol Hill/Bicentennial Mall


LOCATION: Nashville, TN
DATE COMPLETED:
CLIENT: State of Tennessee, Office of State Architect

Hodgson and Douglas was part of the design team for the Capitol Hill Renovation segment of the Bicentennial Mall.  The project, which focused on the northern slope of the State Capitol, serves as the major axial overlook.  Its purpose was to ensure the preservation of the northward vistas and to make the once formidable hillside a useful public square.  Our responsibility in this project included: developing the overall construction documents; schematic grading plan; completion of planting and irrigation plans as well as the design and layout details of walks, steps, special pavement and other site furnishings.

Presently, Hodgson and Douglas has been hired by the State of Tennessee to complete portions  of the Master Plan that were not able to be constructed in the earlier phase. The scope of work will include new walks, overlooks, pavement and wall repair, landscaping, and lighting.  The job will also include the design for repair for the failing limestone retaining wall on the west side of the Capitol.  The project also includes a Monument and Memorial Master Plan for the entire state campus in Downtown Nashville.

EAST NASHVILLE CIVIC SQUARE


LOCATION: Nashville, TN
DATE COMPLETED: 2005
CLIENT: City of Nashville (MDHA) and the Department of Public Works

In 2005, Hodgson Douglas completed a Master Plan for the East Nashville Civic Square. This 9 month long study created a plan to establish a new town center for the East Nashville area as well as vital pedestrian links to the nearby 5 Points mixed-use development area.  A series of four public meetings were held to gain input from the local residents and stakeholders. One of the meetings included a design charrette, where those attending the public meeting were broken into small groups and asked a series of questions that resulted in the creation of individual team designs for the area. Many of the ideas that came from this charrette process were incorporated into the final design. The end result was a master plan that was created and endorsed by the local community.  The Master Plan includes the creation of a grand oval lawn to celebrate East Nashville with a rearranged Gallatin Rd. around an ellipse. With the pedestrian and cyclist in mind, two traffic lanes will be reduced in width as a traffic calming measure and a bike lane will be established. These traffic improvements will act as a crucial step to unifying the neighborhood as well as creating ‘green links’ to different nodes throughout the community.

TENNESSEE TOWER


LOCATION: Nashville, TN
DATE COMPLETED: 2006
CLIENT: Kline Swinney Architects

Hodgson and Douglas provided Landscape Architectural Services to create a new green roof on the renovated plaza of the Tennessee Tower in downtown Nashville for the State of Tennessee. This formerly bleak plaza was enhanced by the creation of over 30,000 S.F. of extensive and intensive green roof plantings. This has resulted in one of the largest green roofs in the State of Tennessee. A light weight soil mix was used. The green roof will provide energy savings for the conditioned space beneath, reduce the heat island effect and provide an important pedestrian friendly outdoor space for downtown. The extensive plantings decrease the storm damage run-off and decrease air pollution. The landscape planting concept was created to complement the strong simple International style of the architecture. The construction cost of the entire project was approximately $12M.
