Skylab worked with 2.ink Studio to create a 16-acre park in a neighborhood of NE Portland. The design team developed the park around an integrated strategy that creates passive native meadow areas, that require limited maintenance, as well as, active program elements for park users. The design takes advantage of clear views to the Columbia River and Mt. St. Helens beyond and brings in a strong sense of the area’s native habitat, allowing a deep connection to all of the natural elements of the park. Working in close collaboration with Portland Parks, we developed the program in result of public open house input from the local residences and ongoing meetings with the project’s Design Advisory Group. The successful collaboration introduced a wide range of new activities onto the site including a community amphitheater, picnic shelter and restroom, off leash dog area, a large community playground, interactive water feature, parking areas, walking paths, and community garden; Active uses include a skate bowl, climbing wall, basketball and ping pong courts and a soccer field. The shelter structure is made up of variations of a basic equilateral triangle module. Designed as an outdoor stage with a covered folded framework roof, the entire structure is made out of painted or galvanized steel- the panels are galvanized steel plate and the sides are perforated. A simple steel pipe frame supports the shelter with graceful economy creating a flexible space to support community events, films, and concerts. The project received a 2018 Daily Journal of Commerce Oregon Top Projects Award in the Public Spaces Category.
