devonian gardens


The nearly 3 acre Devonian Gardens upgrade and renovation within The CORE Shopping Centre led McKinley Burkart to take on many technical and design challenges.  In association with Janet Rosenberg Landscape Architects, our firm worked with the City of Calgary to produce a beautiful public space. This architectural project included replacing existing glass walls and ceilings, a 12 million dollar project unto itself, and designing a unique indoor garden space that would provide a downtown refuge for Calgarians.  An example of the power of public place-making, the Devonian Gardens received Honourable Mention in the Civic Design Projects category of the Mayor's Urban Design Awards.
