Works / Industrial Novellus Systems, Inc. / Portland, Oregon

Novellus_swale_1As a subconsultant to the architect, GreenWorks provided irrigation, planting and hardscape design for this $140 million development. Working under the premise of creating a more urban development within a suburban setting, the design team developed a scheme that brings the buildings close to the street and provides substantial pedestrian connections. The planting plan expands on these concepts by highlighting pedestrian nodes with unique planting material and adapting an urban aesthetic to planting within auto circulation areas. Stormwater is treated in ponds adjacent to the street side of the buildings and is planted in a unique geometric pattern.
