Murrells Inlet, SC
A large version of Anna Hyatt Huntington’s piece Fillies Playing was cast only once during the artist’s lifetime. In 2010, Brookgreen Gardens was able to acquire the piece from a bronze studio that created new molds from the original model. Environmental Concepts designed a home for the new acquisition that revitalized the Gardens’ entrance. Using the existing material vocabulary, the Welcome Center plaza transformed the area from a large, oval lawn into a multi-function terrace with a grand walkway and raised planters that better introduces guests to the beautiful garden visitor experience that lies ahead.
