Macdonald Environmental Planning, PC
Environmental Planning & Landscape Architecture
As a leader in Healing Environment Planning and Design, we are deeply committed to the pursuit of thoughtful, life-enhancing design. Our projects range in size from large scale, Multi-Campus Master Plans, Hospitals and Medical Office Buildings to small-scale, private spaces such as Healing Gardens, Meditation Courtyards and Rooftop Terraces.
Macdonald Environmental Planning, established in 1982 by Laurel Macdonald Bonnell, is a leading environmental planning / landscape architectural firm with offices in Portland and Bend, Oregon. Throughout our history, our sensitivity to the natural systems has been, and continues to be, woven into each and every project; be it a Mixed-Use or Affordable Housing project, a Memory Care Garden, or a Medical Center campus.
Environmentally Responsible Design and Sustainability is a key thread that is intentionally woven through all of our work. In pursuit of this philosophy, we embrace many sustainable design elements such as green streets, living green screens and walls, ecoroofs and green roofs, and soft storm water treatment solutions.
Project involvements range in scale from system wide and regional medical campus healing environment master plans, medical center development master plans, and phased healing environments on expansion projects to detailed entrance plazas, healing gardens, meditation courtyards and rooftop terraces.
Macdonald Environmental Planning, PC has a long standing record for designing sustainable landscape elements into affordable housing projects.
Mixed-Use & Market Rate
The urban setting of the mixed-use community provides opportunities for including creative and dynamic features within the overall design. Engaging features, whether they are designed around water, sculptures, or architecture, provide community recognition and points of connection.
As a principal, Laurel Macdonald Bonnell brings a wealth of knowledge on a wide variety of stormwater and environmental planning. Her knowledge and design leadership is the guiding force for the selection of appropriate sustainable design elements and sound construction detailing.
Senior Communities & Housing
Pedestrian friendly planning and design includes amenities such as bicycle and walking trails, community parks with water features, arbors and picnic tables, and children’s play areas.
