Alrighty folks, this is the first shot at a measured ground plan for "The Clove" town design project that I am doing for someone. It looks like the main plaza is maybe a little over 300 feet long and 200 feet across. This is a rough "raw" sketch, no clean-up, no labels, and not complete, but I want to get some feedback, especially from architects or other creative types. I'm trying to get the dimensions just right so that the proportions of the open space between the various groups of storefronts is just right. This is not easy, and there are places where things get quite narrow, yet pretty open in the middle. Keep in mind it's a pedestrian only plaza! No cars or parking needed. The central feature is a "shallow" stepped waterfall, something you could wade in probably. There is a second stream that joins the main one, coming in from the top right. Most of the groups of buildings are somewhere in my gallery, and overall perspective bird's eye view of the plaza is there too, for reference[link]
. Height of various storefronts is very important! Design philosophy dictates an "organic" curvilinear look to the plan. No classical planning! It should look like an Italian or Southern French hill town, but better!! Feedback?
