Designing Sustainable Communities

BAINBRIDGE LANDING

SITE PLAN

See this project's 

 

In order to create a transition to the surrounding neighborhood, the site design incorporates townhouses at  the site perimeter. 

 

The two to three-story townhouses are surrounded by a landscape buffer. Their garage access forms the interior access lanes, minimizing traffic impacts to the surrounding neighborhood.

PUBLIC PARK

The proposed project is slated to a have a 1 acre public park on the site of the historic Cave family home.  

 

The new park will provide an extension to the existing public green space within Harbor Square. The historic Cave family home will be reloacted immedialtely north of the new park.

COURTYARD APARTMENTS

Consistent with the height restrictions established to protect the adjacent neighborhoods, the taller apartment building is placed at the center of the site.  

 

The large courtyard space is defined at the southern edge, by the Loft Homes, which provide a lower building scale facing Harbor Square.

The site’s design is maximized to encourage walking and cycling.  Amenities are only a 5 minute walk with the project’s placement near the Seattle Ferry and Downtown Winslow.

 

SUSTAINABLE STRATEGIES

Alternative Transit

 

Carbon Footprint

 

Efficient building footprints work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficient designs and higher density.

 

Green Space

 

Parks provide social, physical and recreational opportunities, as well as offer habitat for wildlife and space that can harbor biodiversity.  Open space also helps mitigate storm drainage by keeping water and runoff on site.

Solar Access 

 

Buildings designed for solar access increase sunlight to homes & open spaces creating sunny, outdoor spaces.
