NRH Centre

North Richland Hills, TX


In 2009, Counsilman-Hunsaker and Brinkley Sargent Architects conducted a feasibility study which included gathering public surveys, holding numerous public input meetings as well as exploring opportunities to join forces with an adjacent private development. This encompassing approach was critical to the success of the project. The information gathered enabled the city and design team to formulate a concept that was both efficient and exciting for all users.
