COASTAL WOODLAND RESTORATION

ONE NATURE: ECOLOGICAL SERVICES, DESIGN + CONSTRUCTION | FAIRFIELD COUNTY, CT

One Nature was hired by a Land Trust to oversee the restoration of two acres of coastal forest along Long Island Sound. Shafts of light were created by thinning the forest to allow newly planted trees to thrive.

Strategic plantings of flowers and evergreen native species alongside the road increased the property’s curb value. Plant species were carefully selected for their ability to survive saltwater intrusion during extreme coastal flooding events.

Produced 3D visualizations of the master plan to show new plantings, walking paths and various street views.

CLEANTECH CORRIDOR

SCI-ARC CLEANTECH CORRIDOR COMPETITION | LOS ANGELES, CA

Districts are organized by views to the Los Angeles river, Metro stations and existing highway infrastructure and incorporate a closed loop energy system to alleviate the need for outside resources. Users are guided through vegetated corridors to an elevated park along the river that provides large tracts of open space for recreation and conceals operating freight trains which distribute materials to manufacturing areas.

To preserve open space, the manufacturing center is constructed underground and acts as the southern entrance and anchor for the Cleantech Corridor. The use of materials, energy and water will be closed loop systems to minimize waste and reuse or recycle what remains. The roof of the facility is transformed into recreational fields, gardens, urban farming plots, visitor’s pavilion and amphitheater with access to the elevated park via view corridors.

GREEN GRID PRODUCTIVE COMMUNITY

ONE PRIZE MOWING TO GROWING COMPETITION | COMPTON, CA

This scheme proposes an agro-ecological corridor system that implements agriculture, pollinator gardens, fog harvesting and stormwater filtration systems to provide low-income urban communities with locally grown and harvested food.

Community parking garages, made with reused concrete from the streets, act as metaphorical “hives” for the neighborhood. The “hives” support pedestrian friendly corridors by consolidating vehicles and are strategically placed to influence the circulation of people and pollinators within the community.
