Green Communities

The Philbin Group recently completed Landscape Architectural Permit/Bid drawings for intensive renovations at three existing Bellingham Housing Authority properties as part of a team of local consultants. Following Enterprise Green Communities criteria, our focus included restorative plantings with Pacific Northwest natives, low impact stormwater strategies, pervious paving design, water conserving irrigation design, and community garden areas designed with the Bellingham Food Bank. Three roof gardens were designed for one of the project sites ranging from shallow soil profiles planted with tough succulents, to deep soil profiles supporting small trees, shrubs and multi-use public space. A rain water cistern was also designed to supply irrigation to the roof gardens.
