HOUSTON, March 8, 2010 – Houston’s Hermann Park Lake Plaza has officially been awarded LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Designed by San Antonio-based Overland Partners Architects, the $11 million, eight-acre Hermann Park Lake Plaza opened in May 2009 as the threshold to the 445-acre Hermann Park, Houston’s finest and most-visited public park.

The Plaza features newly landscaped grounds with native plantings, new scenic promenades, and five newly-constructed buildings, including a paddle boat pavilion with a boathouse, the Hermann Park Mini-Train depot with satellite stations around the park, a public restroom facility, a café and terrace, and a volunteer and maintenance building. Also, the Plaza’s new Tiffany & Co. Foundation Bridge arches across a 7.5-acre lake lagoon, offering romantic views from a newly accessible vantage point, increased connectivity within the park, and enhanced beauty of the area without disturbing the natural surroundings.

Every once in a while comes a project that we feel strongly about. It could be due to the vocation of the center and the sensibility of the function it addressed, or the approach taken by the architects and the city of Dallas in creating a complex intended as a safe haven within the heart of its community.


Naming the project “The Bridge” Overland Partners, worked for the integration of the Center to its neighborhood, the planning in this project, one of the recipients of the 2009 AIA Housing Awards, balances personal safety of guests and neighbors with hospitality. Temporary shelter is a reclaimed warehouse while transitional housing is on upper floors, separating disparate populations. Sleeping areas have translucent walls that welcome natural light and remind the City of the presence and function of the building.
