Trees Atlanta Headquarters
After nearly four decades of protecting and improving Atlanta's urban forest by planting, conserving, and educating, Trees Atlanta had grown in mission and organization and needed a new, larger office space.
The organization purchased a 3-acre "brownfield" site in Southwest Atlanta along the recently completed BeltLine Westside Trail. In 2019, Lord Aeck Sargent was hired to lead a master planning process for Trees Atlanta's new home. The resulting plan inlcudes two new buildings knitted within a framework of regenerated ecological habitats including a wet/dry meadow, seepage wetland, oak/pine/hickory forest and mesic "tree trail."
The new facility is also home to Georgia Audubon, The Conservation Fund and The Nature Conservancy in Georgia.
Lord Aeck Sargent served as the Prime Consultant and the Lead Architect for the project.
