North Transfer & Recycle Station
SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES
The 6-acre North Transfer Station in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle was designed as an upgraded facility capable of handling increased solid waste and recycling capacity. HBB is part of the design team that developed the initial concept plan for the site and then produced final drawings for construction of landscape, urban design and open space improvements. The design integrates a natural play area, a multi-sport court, open lawn, fitness stations, parkour routes, plazas, streetscape, an artist-designed sculpture, and gathering spaces. We designed the project to meet LEED® Gold certification and City of Seattle 0.4 Green Factor including two extensive green roofs and integrated cobble stormwater swales.
