Dig Studio worked to thoughtfully renovate the McDowell Mountain Ranch Recreation Center that was nestled into an existing neighborhood. The site sits adjacent to a prominant wash and features abundant views of the nearby McDowell Mountains.
Dig’s concept for the renovation was to expand the natural setting and draw elements into the site in a playful way. Informational graphics that bring awareness to the native flora and fauna are woven into the play features, highlighted by critter tracks that raom over the site. A pair of kid friendly binoculars encourages visual exploration vibrant play equipment brings energy to the space.
The existing pool area was expanded to include a new program area featuring grills, a ramada, and open lawn perfect for celebrating the amazing views.
