Saltwood

Portland, Oregon

Two unique courtyards have been designed to reflect the natural history of the northwest as part of a multi-block development within the Slabtown District. In one courtyard, a twenty-foot high misting fern cone wrapped in weathered steel rises above an urban garden and alludes to the moss and fern covered hills surrounding Portland. One block away, a large reflecting pool is set within a central gathering space and is reminiscent of the vernal pools that sprang from Tanner Springs that once flowed through this area.
