Building Design

We have retained CRSA Architects to design the well building to meet the project's purpose and needs, meet our needs and standards, follow city codes and ordinances, follow and maintain the guidelines defined by the Historic Landmark Commission, and take into account public input. We have held a series of facilitated working group meetings with residents near the well site to discuss what they would like in terms of architectural design.

Here are some highlights of what we heard from residents. The building should be timeless, simple, unobtrusive, and be aesthetically pleasing. They said they liked a historic look more than modern, and that design elements should reflect historic pump houses. They also said they liked brick, stone or stucco, and that they want a design that reduces size but not at the expense of aesthetics. 

The following architectural design options have been developed based upon resident input and the design parameters. We have reviewed and discussed these options with the residents near the well site and now would like to obtain input from the general public.
