Great Park Neighborhoods
Signature parks and distinctive homes connect together through miles of walking and biking trails.
Complete with miles of walking and biking trails, each neighborhood offers convenient access to the Great Park and all of the amenities Irvine has to offer, including some of the top-ranking schools in the state. We were brought on to the FivePoint team to help give each neighborhood a distinct personality, through signage and wayfinding graphics.
The Irvine Great Park is iconic to the region and one of a kind in size and features with a collection of unique neighborhoods joined together by walking and biking trails, planned to link back to the Irvine Transportation Center. RSM Design worked closely with 5 Point Communities to create signage and wayfinding for each neighborhood and park as well as a unifying master plan signage system that creates and encourages visitors to engage in all that the communities have to offer.
Cadence Park is a dynamic connecting park within the Great Park Neighborhood in Irvine, California. It is an artfully curated community park with areas of rest, engaging installations, and buildings designed for performing and community arts. The signage and wayfinding elements are modern yet playful with pops of color and polished surfaces that reflect the surroundings and create movement as you navigate through the park. The unique building identities and signage design were created to give the guest a clear and fun way to differentiate the buildings, while murals create moments of placemaking in between the public spaces.
Pavilion Park is the first of several communities developed by Great Park Neighborhoods, sited around the perimeter of the Orange County Great Park. Pavilion Park aims to mix contemporary design with the character of the area, adding historic relevance to the site by featuring an artful blend of graphics and signage. Playful graphic elements and typography are incorporated into the wayfinding signage as well as the amenity signage to create an added layer of enjoyment for the community.
The Pools is an 8-acre park located in the Great Park Neighborhoods in Irvine, California, Consisting of a junior Olympic pool, a family pool, a children’s pool, and three spas as well as sand volleyball courts, a clubhouse, and general fitness areas, this park truly encompasses the spirit of the outdoors in Orange County. RSM Design worked with FivePoint and the GPN team to develop refined and welcoming identity signage and regulatory signage and helped curate a series of artful moments meant to inspire and delight both guests and residents.
The Parasol Park development focuses on a higher density of housing, and features a large community park, garden, greenhouse, and community building. The Great Park Neighborhoods partnered with The Ecology Center to create a natural space to gather as a community and will also facilitate weekly and monthly family activities. The design team was inspired to create a look and feel for the neighborhood that was hand crafted and high quality. Wood and hand painted identity elements were carried throughout, and many signs featured hand drawn and playful typography and illustrations. RSM Design also carried elements from The Ecology Center brand into the garden signage, which created a sense of unity and cohesiveness across the two brands.
Beacon Park is the second of several communities developed by Great Park Neighborhoods, sited around the perimeter of the Orange County Great Park. RSM Design worked closely with 5 Point Communities to create signage and wayfinding that stood out, giving Beacon Park its own identity within the Great Park Neighborhood system. RSM Design was inspired by navigation and mid-century modern design to create a palette that pops.
