Maple Grove Central Park Maple Grove, MN
U+B was hired by the City of Maple Grove to design the architectural components for the city’s Central Park. The new warming house design responds to series of new park components ranging from a fall-winter-spring refrigerated ice rink to an interactive summer fountain and playground. The architectural components are designed to respond to the adjacent park programming through an rural notion of agrarian buildings, each serving a specific functional program and each assuming a separate identity united by a common palette of materials. The fully realized master plan will incorporate a maintenance building with a Zamboni garage, a garden pavilion, pergola and picnic shelter all united through views to the park. As one of the fastest growing cities in Minnesota, Maple Grove boasts some of the most state-of-the art amenities in the state for a suburban community.
