Located a short distance from the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal, this new 140 home LEED Silver neighborhood will include townhomes, flats, and lofts. This neighborhood is thoughtfully designed to fit into the historic and new neighborhood fabric incorporating a 1-acre public park and well-detailed public streets and private lanes. Homes overlook the new park, courtyard and green streets. The centerpiece is an amenity rich terraced courtyard framed by 3-4 story stacked flats. Two to three story townhomes and lofts with carefully detailed streetscapes are located along the edge of the site providing a graceful transition to adjacent mixed use and single-family neighborhoods. Several heritage trees, originally from Kew gardens are preserved. Innovative features include covered bike parking, car sharing, EV charging stations, transit shelter and public space.

Pleasant Beach Village, a new mixed use neighborhood by Wenzlau Architects for Windermere, was conceived as an extension of the historic Lynwood Center shopping district on Bainbridge Island, WA. A 4-room lodge and seven cottages are proposed for the less than 1-acre site. The interior courtyard will be a cottage garden with a variety of traditional plant species and the surrounding perimeter will be a woodland garden to provide continuity with the adjacent native forest. The project has recently gone through the city’s SPR process.

Chiado Residence

Share this Post

FBP designed a portion of the grounds for the Chiado residence on the shores of Manzanita Bay on Bainbridge Island, WA. The approach from the driveway to the house was transformed from a large, tired lawn to a dynamic set of shifting terraces consisting of different gardens, a dining terrace and a small lawn panel. These new spaces are defined by low, custom granite seat walls. Grade transitions were achieved with slabs of Ozark Sandstone stone as steps. Plantings consist primarily of low groundcovers, perennials and ornamental grasses to preserve the ‘clearing in the forest’ feel of the property as it is surrounded by mature forest. Specimen trees- a Sazanami Japanese Maple and a multi-stemmed Persian Parrotia provide striking texture and leaf color as the focal points for two of the main gardens. Elegant pedestrian lighting was installed for evening use of the walkways and dining terrace.

FBP developed a site and planting plan for the Fairbank residence on the shores of Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge Island, WA.

The slopes were planted with native species and other drought tolerant species such as Lemon Beauty Box Honeysuckle, Wood’s Compact Kinnikkinnik and White Rockrose, ornamental grasses such as Pink Fountain Grass, Mexican Feather Grass and Dwarf Maiden Grass, and perennials such as Black-eyed Susan and Purple Coneflower.

FBP provided landscape architectural services for this 15-unit single family subdivision in West Seattle. Planting design met City of Seattle Green Factor requirements. Coordination with the civil engineer resulted in the design of multiple rain garden planting cells between homes and significant pervious surfaces. Many of the large significant trees are preserved in the plan and the proposed landscape transitions from more ornamental grasses and showy perennials at the home’s front entries to more robust and native groundcovers and shrubs near the existing tree canopies edge.

Old Orchard Lodge at Arrow Peak Ranch

Share this Post

The architecture of the new Old Orchard Lodge at Arrow Peak Ranch references rustic park lodges of the National Park System built in the early 1900’s. The site and landscape design will incorporate these important references as well as references to nature and human activities in the western landscape. Experiences, design details and sightlines from the new lodge will connect guests with nature, native people, exploration, and the settling of the west.
