The Contemporary Austin-Laguna Gloria
A state and national treasure, AMOA-Laguna Gloria was formerly the estate of Clara Driscoll, a revered Texas citizen. Research revealed that Ms. Driscoll was the primary designer of the landscape surrounding her Italianate home. We were hired to research and document the historic significance of Laguna Gloria’s landscape and develop a cultural landscape report that outlined rehabilitation and preservation strategies.
The report was intended to be a guide for responsible stewardship of Laguna Gloria and its significant historic assets, as well as a resource for future development, site usage and maintenance practices.
