Creating a sense of place was critical during the Walhalla Master Plan Charrette. In three days, the Alta team uncovered the potential of the “Main Street to the Mountains.”

Through understanding the deep rooted connections of residents to the history and future of the town and coupling the emotional ties with physical elements, the design team crafted a downtown that exemplifies the concept of rustic elegance. From the main street furnishings to the store fronts – colors, materials, and vegetation work together to create a comfortable, safe, and attractive complete street and series of small town spaces. Quilts in the form of art, pavement markings, and signs lead users through the town to discover intimate patios, vibrant businesses, and local restaurants that visitors want to experience and residents are proud to call home.
