    Pencoyd Landing is a residential development along the western banks of the Schuykill river, directly across from downtown Manayunk and connected to it by a planned pedestrain connection that reuses an existing bridge manufactured by the former historic tenants of the site. The 6.8 acre development includes a public plaza framed by an industrial truss relic reminiscent of the historic factories that once existed along this industrial corridor. A bike cafe, situated within an historic train shed, anchors the public plaza on the Schuykill River, and provides a unique experience at the rivers edge. Blending sustainable practices, the site also includes three large green roofs, one of which hosts an infinity pool with a deck, fire pit, bar, and seating area. The development also features rain gardens to mitigate stormwater and improve biodiversity. The extensive rain gardens are spanned by steel catwalks to provide residents access to a public river trail that connects to the regions trail network.

  • the trust for public land parks for people program - william dick schoolyard PHILADELPHIA, PA

    Working for The Trust for Public Land, and in partnership with the Philadelphia Water Department and the Philadelphia School District, we helped transform a 1.78 acre asphalt lot into a playground and green learning environment for students at the William Dick Elementary School in Philadelphia, a K-8 school serving approximately 300 students. This schoolyard project is part of Philadelphias Green2015, the groundbreaking initiative to assist the City of Philadelphia reach its goal of 500 new acres of publicly accessible green space by 2015. Located in the Fairhill neighborhood, the overarching goal of this schoolyard improvements is to increase publicly accessible open space in underserved communities, improve green infrastructure, infiltrate more stormwater, and provide a safe place for children to play. Informed by a robust community engagement and education process, the resulting plans will provide the creation of spaces and facilities that promote open space equity, environmental education and direct benefits to the users, the community and the urban environment.

  • roosevelt plaza park pop-upCAMDEN, NJ

    Roosevelt Plaza Park is a temporary installation that will last from late summer until winter in front of City Hall. The purpose of the park is to enliven Roosevelt Plaza through low cost and flexible placemaking strategies that will guide future park improvements in the coming years. A major feature of the installation is an interactive light sculpture utilizing IBC totes as building blocks. The totes are reconditioned storage containers that are refurbished by several Camden businesses. The design team will be observing Roosevelt Plaza Park throughout the year to see what elements of the park work best, and which could be improved.
