Harker and Hall Architecture Ltd., owned by Dennis Harker and Albert Hall, is an architectural design and building firm. Rhiannon Harker serves as Public Relations Representative. The firm's home office is on Harker's Island off the coast of Eldicor on the western side of the Rhydinian continent. They have a satellite office in Old Temple near the district's baronial manor in the law offices of Rachael MacLeod.

Hatton Point - Children's Play Park

H&H sponsored and did the construction for the Hatton Point Children's Play Park. The design was primarily created by Mairead Harker with assistance from her father, Dennis Harker. Maggie's vision includes the following:

Hatton Point - Children's Play Park: Phase I - Campground and Fishing Area

A family campground with fishing and picnic areas. Comfort facilities are also provided. For those that don't care for tent camping, there is an area with cabins nearby. The campground has its own playground. The Play Park camping facilities are located in a grove at the center of the park. Personal tents and camping gear are welcome. While shower and rest room facilities are available, this area is considered to be primitive camping. Charcoal grills are available for general use. A camp store is located nearby for purchasing food supplies. The campground has a stocked fishing pond and playground. For those wishing to to have indoor sleeping quarters and/or cooking facilities private cabins are available. Lodges are also available for large groups.

Hatton Point - Children's Play Park: Phase III: S. S. Mini-Mate

The S. S. Mini-Mate has a play area and comfort facilities inside the ship. Costumes and props are provided for children that want to play pirates on the high seas. The venue is located on a coastal section of Hatton Point. Children and their adult chaperones will be able to climb aboard this refurbished and currently stationary galleon. Kids can play pirate, learn the art of sailing, how to tie nautical knots, navigate by the stars, or just relax by the water. A redwood deck provides a dry path from the ship to the shore as well as seating to enjoy the scenic vista. An artificial waterfall as well as luminescent coral plants lend to the oceanic atmosphere.

Overview



Indoor playroom
This area is primarily for the tots that are not quite ready for the on deck activities or for inclement weather. Below this deck are sleeping quarters and more comfort facilities for overnight and weekend accommodations. These areas are accessed through the side door entrance of the ship. There is also a Captain's cabin in the upper section of the ship.





Life guards are on duty for those that wish take part in swimming, snorkeling, and other water related activities. Swimming and snorkeling classes are offered for all age groups. Scuba diving lessons are available on a limited basis.

The Siren's Song is a hibachi style restaurant that features fresh seafood and other grilled items. Vegetarian fare is available.

West Side Old Market Emergency Services and Urgent Care Center



The ground and upper level of the fire station building were completed in 2014 during the tenure of Rhiannon Harker as the Baroness of Old Market. Currently, the basement is being renovated to serve as an emergency shelter.

An urgent care center, sponsored by Mairead Harker (24th Baron of Old Market), Riverview Clinic, and the MacLeod Foundation, is being built next to the fire station. The outer structure is nearly completed. It is hoped that the clinic and shelter will be fully operational by January 2016.

The basement level of the fire station and urgent care center are completed.


The urgent care surgical and recovery unit has three fully equipped surgery rooms and four recovery beds. Limited neonatal facilities are available. Staff kitchen, lounge, and sleeping facilities are open to all urgent care staff. The sleeping facilities have six beds with vanity and personal storage available. Four all-in-one staff bathrooms are located within the surgical nurses' station and triage area. The area can be accessed via stairs and elevator in the urgent care center.

The emergency shelter can be accessed via stairs through the fire station. For those with disabilities, injuries, or small children access can also be gained through the elevator in the urgent care center. The communal kitchen and dining area can seat 38 people plus infants/toddlers in high chairs. There is a small lounge with TV/movies and some games. When meals are not being served, the dining area is suitable for board, card, and some other group games. There are four sets of washers and dryers. H&H's design includes two large rooms, male and female quarters, with six bunk beds each. Eight all-in-one bathrooms and two dressing areas are available in this area. There are seven rooms set aside for family groups of various sizes. Each room has an all-in-one bathroom, mini-fridge, and microwave. Those in need of long term arrangements for housing will be given temporary shelter and assistance in finding more permanent quarters.

Harker & Hall is aware of the many transgender people living in Rhydin. The male and female designations within the basement level are not meant to exclude any people that identify with the gender opposite to their physical one. It is asked that those using the facility be respectful and sensitive to the needs of others sharing their sleeping quarters. Since the bathroom units offer complete privacy to individuals, it was decided to remove the wall that divided the area into two rooms. Bathroom units also have a slimline waterproof storage area in the wall to hold clothing while a shower is being taken. Dressing rooms have privacy locks.

Correspondence 1 - Race Bannon Re: Wonderplex and Typhoon Bay

22 Jan 2016

To: Race Bannen
Mad Hatter Enterprises

From: Rhiannon D. Harker
Harker & Hall Architecture Ltd.

Race,

Several of the new additions to the children's area of Wonderplex are ready for your personal inspection. Safety checks regarding general construction and related utility connections have been completed. As per our agreement, after extensive background checks, staff has been and is being hired, and insurance has been acquired to cover the park's liability for potential accidents. There will be an urgent care center opening on site with certified medical professionals on duty during park hours to include one hour before opening and one hour after closing. While that facility was not specifically discussed in our verbal contract, as the representative of Harker and Hall I did agree to attend to all possible safety issues. The care center is similar to the one that was recently built on the West Side of the Old Market District including a small surgical unit.

The other areas ready for you to inspect and/or to give a trial run are as follows:

The Sweet Shoppe - The Sweet Shoppe is an ice cream shop and bakery. Cakes and other sweet treats are baked on site. There is a small scale canning operation where children can learn to make and sample their own jam and jelly creations. They can also get some experience in cake decorating. In the rear, is a fenced in outdoor play area with a Candy Land theme.

Kids' Arcade & Fun Center - We considered the name 'Kids' Kasino,' but some people might have objected to the implication that children were being encouraged to gamble. This is a bi-level structure with a patio on the upper floor. Arcade games, pool tables, foosball, air hockey, and pinball machines as well more traditional games like chess and dominoes are currently available. There is a prize booth on the ground floor with an assortment of tech toys as well as plushies. We expect that the giant gumball machine will be a popular attraction. A solar grid and skylights are installed in the roof to allow the arcade to provide its own power source.

Indoor Pool - A minimum of two lifeguards and two paramedics will be on duty during open hours.
The pool has skylight roof to allow the building to be lit and warmed by natural light and heat during daylight hours. In addition to other restrooms, there are two family style restroom/changing room areas. Two diving boards and a sliding board are available. Life vests are provided for beginning swimmers. Two certified swimming instructors have already been added to the staff and a schedule is being arranged. Classes will be held twice a week and the pool will be open to students only during those sessions. A vendor selling various snacks and drinks is located outside the natatorium.

Infant and Toddler Care Centers - There are houses that have been built in the children's area to accommodate infants and toddlers that are too young or too easily tired out for some of the attractions throughout Wonderplex. Each of these child care centers has a play yard with tall privacy fence. Sandboxes and kiddie pools are some of the outdoor toys available. Latches on the gates as well as the entrances to the building are connected to a security system. The first floor houses an office, a kitchen, two full bathrooms, a first aid center, the infant room, and a playroom. Second floor has the toddler sleeping areas, laundry facilities, two full bathrooms, a playroom, and a quiet room. Each building has a nurse on duty at all times as well as several attendants that divide the duties of cooking and child care. We are currently finishing the last of these buildings.

Wonderplex Express - The Wonderplex Express is a train and train station. Your staff was most helpful in getting this one together as we need to lay out train tracks. Pending your comments after looking it over, this train could remain as a stationary exhibit or go live and make a circuit around the children's area and/or the entire park. The train is meant to allow children as well as their old family members to experience dining and sleeping on train cars as was once popular in days gone by. Each pair of cars has a dining car with a small kitchen and a car with two sleeping and drawing rooms. All-in-bathroom and shower facilities are available. The drawing room sofas can be converted to create additional sleeping space. The train station has a waiting room, comfort facilities, and a small snack bar.

Children's Carnival - This area is still in progress, but the roller coaster is completed and operational if you'd like to test that out.

Farm Life - This area allows children to experience some of the aspects of living on a farm. There are some large animals there and we have required a minimum age of eight years or five years if a parent or guardian is present. There is active beehive in this area as well. Care has been taken regarding allergies to any animals including bee stings. Horseback riding, milking cows and other activities are being set up.

All facilities have rest rooms as you might expect. Many, but not all facilities have refreshments available.
All employees in these areas are certified in basic first aid and CPR including CPR for infants.

There are some other attractions that were just started that we hope will meet with your approval. Children's Day is just around the corner and the entire project should be completed by then. Perhaps, Wonderplex could be the host site this year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Rhiannon D. Harker

Correspondence 2 - Race Bannon Re: Wonderplex and Typhoon Bay
02 Mar 2016 02:47

To: Race Bannen
Mad Hatter Enterprises

From: Rhiannon D. Harker
Harker & Hall Architecture Ltd.

Race,

Since my last missive, a great deal of progress has been made and more of the new areas are now ready for Wonderplex and Typhoon Bay's spring and summer season.

The completed projects and those in progress are as follows:

Two of the projects for Typhoon Bay are completed.
The beach and floating wedding venues are ready to greet any couples and guests that are planning to tie the knot beginning this spring.


The beach-side Surf and Turf Restaurant, barring special events, welcomes resort patrons that are of legal age; 18 or 21 depending on park and local regulations. This is due to the proximity of the Riverboat Casino.





A third project is still under construction. A beach area with access to rowboats, sailboats, and lessons for piloting and navigating small crafts is in the final stages of preparation. The third venue is planned to be used for sightseeing and fishing tours.

The amusement park and circus.
We have managed to find several acts with animals that are taking part of their own free will. As you might be aware, several of my family members do speak various dialects of non-humanoid languages. That made things much easier to accomplish.

Gypsy camp

Some locals that live according to some of the traditions of their Romany ancestors will be giving open fire cooking demonstrations and performing live music. Lessons in herb lore will be available. While palmistry and some other forms of divination like tarot cards are often attributed to originating within gypsy culture, it is not necessarily the truth of the matter. Park guests will be reminded that the readings being done are for entertainment purposes unless other arrangements are made.

Farm Life
The farmhouse, greenhouse, and stables are in progress. Two horse jumping courses to accommodate all levels of skill have been completed. A shop for selling the farm's produce and other freshly made goods is in the layout stages. A small apartment has been made ready for a caretaker. We are interviewing people with hopes of hiring the primary caretaker and filling other positions by mid-March.

Ren Faire Castle

This venue can accommodate several age groups. Children under ten years of age will not be admitted without an adult. Open fires are in use for cooking and sword making demonstrations. The weapons and archery demonstrations are done with the use of actual weaponry. Parents and those adults in loco parentis will be reminded of the potential hazards. They will be referred to one of the park's daycare centers should they wish to take a more active part in these events. We have completed the first floor interior, courtyard, and a picnic grove.

Castle front before window installation complete.

Rear view: Demonstration Zone

First Floor floor plan layout

Courtyard with fountain.


Several other projects are on the drawing board and expected to be ready by mid-summer. Attached are photos and demo video of some of the areas in progress.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Otherwise, we'll contact you with further details as opening day gets closer.

Sincerely,

Rhiannon D. Harker

Correspondence 3 - Race Bannon Re: Wonderplex and Typhoon Bay Children's Day Events

To: Race Bannen
Mad Hatter Enterprises

From: Rhiannon D. Harker
Harker & Hall Architecture Ltd.

Re: Children's Day 2016

Race,

Children's Day Events this year will be held 3-9 April. In honor of that event, Wonderplex has been free to the public. Mairead Harker has once again volunteered to serve as hostess for this community project and would like to have all the events centered at Wonderplex this year. Harker's Academy and the MacLeod Foundation will co-sponsor with Mad Hatter Enterprises.

The Academy along with the management of the Misfit Squadron based at Stars End Spaceport will be arranging transport for children that are residents at the local orphanages and families that would otherwise have no means of traveling.

Here's to a successful venture!

Sincerely,

Rhiannon D. Harker

ROCBG - Rhydin Observatory Complex and Botanical Garden

The ROCBG was built on a land grant donated to the city of Rhydin by Briarius Ravensheart and is located behind the Ravensheart Academy's Administration Building in Dragon's Gate. Then Governor Fionna Helston al-Amat had polled citizens for opinions on uses for land parcel 34-j7f005. The suggestions included an observatory, botanical garden, and public gardening space. After running the numbers on the land available, it was learned that there was enough space for all three of these things.

The Observatory Complex and Botanical Garden are public educational and entertainment facilities. An official opening and dedication was held at the Governor's Yule Ball in December 2013. The patio and walkways that surround the area contain bricks engraved with dedications to the memories of deceased and missing citizens of Rhydin. Several of the park benches have also memorial plaques.

The complex's cornerstone bears the name of Harker and Hall Architecture, Ltd. The cornerstone was one of two concessions requested in exchange for services rendered to the city. Responsible for the design, building, and upkeep of the ROCBG, H&H is a family owned and run business that operates in the City of Rhydin as well as the surrounding realms. Richard D. Harker and his longtime friend, Albert W. Hall, are the joint owners of this organization. Harker's wife, Rhiannon, is in charge of Public Relations. Mrs. Harker also serves as General Manager for the Observatory Complex. Another member of the family, Eregor Tur Gairdin manages the Botanical Garden.




Facilities within the observatory building honor and remember several citizens. The Botanical Garden, however, was dedicated in memory of one person, Fayalki the Hunter. For many years, Fayalki served his adopted home as a shaman and healer. He is best remembered, along with his wife, Dechirant (Dey), as a beloved bartender at the Red Dragon Inn. His tomahawk still hangs on the wall behind the bar.

The Botanical Garden is home to a variety of plant species including examples of those native and non-native to the Realm of Rhydin. There is an active beehive and an ant colony within the conservatory. While the honeybees can safely be observed from behind a plexiglass wall, a reminder is posted for the benefit of those with allergies to bee venom. Doses of Epinephrine are kept on hand as an emergency precaution. Some of the honey produced by the hive is sold in jars and products sold in the cafe of observatory building. Restrooms are located just outside the conservatory.

There are plenty of places on the grounds to enjoy a stroll, a quiet place to think or read, or enjoy a picnic in the grove. A gazebo has played host to a few weddings and performances of local artists. A small carousel for children is open most of the year. Several greenhouses and garden plots are available to the public, free of charge. The only stipulation is those patrons that are growing plants known or found to be poisonous do so in one of the smaller, single holder, greenhouses that can be locked. During the winter freezes, a large pond is used for ice skating.
