In 2004 VODA directed the landscape rehabilitation for one of Utah’s most unique Mid-Century modern homes. Designed in the late 1950’s by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Stromquist residence is one of the last projects Wright designed, and is Utah’s only Wright creation. Finished after Wright’s death, the home has had a fascinating history, and was returned to the original homebuilder’s ownership in 1999, Mr. Don Stromquist.
VODA’s been working recently with a grassroots group of citizens determined to turn a community eyesore into a community asset. With a highly visible corner of Sugar House occupied by long-unused tennis courts, this group is planning to create the Sugar House Community Garden on the space once occupied by the Fairmont Park Tennis Courts.
