PROJECTS / Parks + Recreation
The Arts and Crafts movement is an important aspect of the regional heritage of Northern Indiana. Landstory incorporated those similar textures, forms and colors into the vernacular for an initial half mile of the Dunes-Kankakee regional trail near the Indiana National Lakeshore between the Porter County Visitor’s Center and Dunes National Park. Custom markers, signage, restroom buildings, trail monuments and decorative pavement were designed to reflect this aesthetic. Project included the preparation of a Pattern Book to provide design guidelines and standards for all future trail segments regarding overall character-setting and design elements.
