Enterprise Plaza at 1100 Louisiana

Faced with an open plaza that lacked amenities, The Office of James Burnett was challenged by the client to create an active plaza that provides a new entry for the 1980's building. The Plaza welcomes visitors and tenants through the creation of an outdoor gathering space with canopy shade trees, cooling water features, comfortable furniture, and fascinating planting. Because the plaza is located above an existing parking structure, the design also faced significant technical challenges.

A large elliptical fountain basin defines both the primary function space and the main pedestrian path to the entry. The fountain features a series of overflowing basins, concentric rings of bubblers, and a focal with a choreographed display of jets shooting up to 20' in the air. Custom-designed planting structures accommodate mature oak trees, provide seating, and conceal LED accent lighting. Movable furniture at the Plaza provides additional flexibility as the needs of site users change throughout the day.
