Smith-Gilbert Gardens is a 16-acre woodland garden that serves as a resource for conservation, education, and enjoyment of horticulture, fine arts, and historic preservation.

TSW proposed two concept plans to explore the integration of the proposed visitor center and desired parking spaces with the existing garden master plan. A final site plan was comprised from the preferred conceptual plan and included an event lawn that transitioned to other parts of the garden. Additionally, TSW provided a preliminary set of floor plans and elevations in order to establish an initial building cost.

For those wishing to visit, Smith-Gilbert Gardens is conveniently located near interstate I-75 and about 45 minutes from the Atlanta Airport.
