Client: Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens


The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens’ Victorian-style Lord & Burnham conservatory is a renowned piece of architecture that symbolizes a rich period in plant exploration and discovery. Oasis Design Group created an equally powerful design for the conservatory’s interior plant exhibitions and site master plan for the surrounding landscape. Oasis worked with the design team and the Gardens’ stakeholders on a master plan for the interior conservatory exhibits and exterior site that will chart the course of the Gardens for the next 50 years. Toshiko Mori Architect led the design team effort in collaboration with Oasis Design Group and Arup.

Firm Accomplishments

  • Created master plan for 7 historic conservatory rooms and for the site that will accommodate a new Welcome Center, a variety of new facilities, parking, and new gardens.
