EXPERIENCE

The 13 acre project site, formerly the Boise Cascade paper plant, is located in the heart of Salem adjacent to the popular Riverfront Park. The site is comprised of 4 plots with the railroad serving as the east / west divide and Pringle Creek as the north / south divide. Our proposal seeks to expand public access to the waterfront and connect the four parcels of land. We want to celebrate the confluence of Pringle Creek and the Willamette Slough.

ƌŽĐŬƐƚĞƉƐ ĂĐƌŽƐƐĐƌĞĞŬ

BEFORE

What does it mean to celebrate the confluence? It means to experience the meeting of waters, the smells, sounds, and sights of native plant communities restored. It means to reconnect with a place long hidden from view beneath decades of industry. It means to experience this environment from the water as well as the land, to gain new perspectives and appreciation for its beauty and function. It means creating a rich environment for residents and small businesses. It means creating a destination that residents and visitors alike can craft a day of adventure around. It means polishing one of Salem’s most promising natural jewels to a vibrant luster.

design statement LuMberjuMble is an accent light that washes the wall with light and shadow. Wood, a touchable and durable material suitable for a classroom, creates a rich and sculptural effect and engages the viewer. This luminaire supports a calming and intimate atmosphere for quiet activities such as reading and storytime.
