Arbor Village is a community west of Portland which has a four acre community park with an old-fashioned gazebo for concerts. The park also has a wetland of significant size. We were able to locate and wetland raised walking bridge so residents could enjoy views and connections with nature.
West Orenco is a 422-unit high-density housing project with excellent connection to public transport. Our design balances sustainability through wetland mitigation and storm water swales with community spaces such as a pool deck and patio and a 2-acre park.
For the design of this community development, we envisioned over a ¼ mile of greenway trails to serve as important passive recreation and pedestrian access throughout the community. An existing wetland will be preserved and serve as a sustainable education component for visitors.
This 2 Acre Neighborhood Park will provide play areas for young and older kids, a picnic shelter and plaza overlooking green space next to a nature preserve. Our design encompasses the sustainable community development and environmental stewardship visions set forth by the City of Hillsboro.
Creekstone is a Planned Unit Development in Kennewick, WA. Our planning involvement addressed the treatment of all the project entrances, open space, easement areas, right of way landscaping and Parks. We encouraged sustainable storm water treatment solutions for the runoff by proposing simulated creek beds, as opposed to conventional piping solutions.
As part of a 68-acre development, we designed two community parks, and the open space areas. The landscape features include a park shelter with arbors, a pavilion with an interactive water feature, green spaces with native plants, and bicycle trails.
