EINWILLERKUEHL


We make ideas real. EinwillerKuehl was founded as a collaboration of friends. This makes collaboration our expectation and our habit. We create interdisciplinary connections that result in innovation that can be built. In addition to strong creative muscles, the backbone of our process is clarity in communication. We know the ability to create things that don’t exist often relies on inventing a shared language. We are expert at listening and synthesizing information. We draw, we write, we model, and we seek inspiration from ecology, culture, and what people do in existing landscapes. We are expert at crafting a clear vision to communicate with the stakeholders of all kinds and being able to communicate effectively with contractors in the field. We are passionate about using the design of landscape to create the changes we want to see in the world. We believe landscapes are fantastic when they are layered experiences, open to the discovery and desires of the visitor at different times of day, in different seasons, and throughout the passage of time. We find and create opportunities to enhance ecology, provide resiliency, and create connections between people. We are smart about finding political and financial capital to make things happen and bringing value to a project of any scale or budget. For the last five years the firm has established itself as a significant emerging design voice in the Bay Area. Our clients and projects range from large well known tech firms to, state and regional agencies, and private developers and families. The office is nimble--not too big and not too small--and able to respond quickly and fluidly to requests. Firm leadership still sits in the same room with all the staff and we all talk everyday about projects and our favorite landscapes. Our experience allows us to work efficiently and smartly and to understand the importance of scope and budget to achieving a built design. We have completed the construction of numerous landscape projects and offer real world credentials and experience with tough site conditions to back up our innovations. We have curated this deck to showcase both our construction knowledge and implementation of ideas as well as the on-going experimental threads that inform our work. Everyone on our team is committed to working at the highest levels in the most accessible ways to inspire you and the public. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have.

BRIDGE YARD THE BRIDGE YARD PROJECT transforms an existing historic industrial site into a micro-park experience celebrating the history as well as the future potential of the site as a regional park. With the careful insertion of an elevated terrace, the design re-establishes the local ecological scale of the Bay and connects users to the water while also framing the historic setting for the IERBYS (Inter-urban Electric Rail Bridge Yard Shop) building. Re-purposing Bay Bridge construction by-products for site furniture strengthens the project’s authenticity.

DESIGN GOALS At the request of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and Caltrans, the design team proposed a small footprint intervention in an evolving industrial site near the base of the Bay Bridge in Oakland. Focused at the IERBYS (Inter-urban Electric Rail Bridge Yard Shop) building, the terrace was placed to frame the historic train portals as well as to define a plaza in the foreground of the building. The stated goal of the plaza was to establish a bicycle pedestrian rest area for users bound for the new bike trail on the Bay Bridge. The arrival from the bike/ped path was given the importance as the primary entrance. The plaza design maintains the open view to the end of the building in keeping with the historic setting of the train approaches.

BRIDGEYARD RE-PURPOSED CABLE SPOOLS

SPECIAL ATTRIBUTES & FEATURES Inspired by the water views from the now demolished mezzanine of the building an elevated terrace frames the plaza and defines an intimate foreground to display the historic facade. A monolithic stair faces the plaza looking north, but also flips and provides a bench at the top for views south. The use of astroturf at the elevated level provides a symbolic icon of ‘lawn means park’, but also was a practical material for a site without water available for irrigation. Cable Spools that provided strands of cable to be bound together into the large cables for the bridge were re-made into spool chairs.

BROOKLYN BASIN PROJECT DESCRIPTION Einwiller Kuehl is developing a family of parks for the new Brooklyn Basin Project in Oakland, California. We began our work on the 10 acre Shoreline Park in 2015 and recently have been hired to extend our scope to all 30 acres of parks in the development.

EINWILLERKUEHL

SHORELINE PARK stretches along the south and west edges of the Oakland Estuary at the Southern edge of Brooklyn Basin in Oakland, California. Approximately half the site was formerly the 9th Avenue terminal. Elements of the terminal building will be preserved to provide a memory of the industrial history in this location. These historic artifacts will be integrated and overlaid with new plantings, lighting, and other elements that combine to provide a unique infrastructure for the new park. The existing wharf was constructed over a number of years and the condition of the piers is extremely varied and requires upgrade to comply with current seismic codes. The park design considers the wharf condition and develops a new geometry based on repair and removal of existing piers while simultaneously re-imagaing the landscape for its new function as a waterfront park.


PUBLIC

Excerpted from a letter Received from Naomi Schiff, Oakland Heritage Alliance (OHA), John Sutter, Commissioner, East Bay Regional Parks District, James E Vann, Coalition of Advocates for Lake Merritt (CALM) on October 7, 2015 following the presentation of Einwiller Kuehl’s Park Plan:

“We are content that the design is rapidly developing toward establishing Shoreline Park as a notable new regional destination, a compliment to Oakland’s diminishing waterfront access, and to the new park’s maximum utilization as a popular attraction for Oakland and its neighbors.” We have proven ability to work with City Staff, commmunity groups, and other stakeholders to achieve a positive direction for the public design process on important Oakland Public Space.

NEWPORT BEACH NEWPORT BEACH CIVIC CENTER is a remarkable combination of a destination passive park and a city hall grounds. In addition to the physical design, the entire site program was invented by the design team in collaboration with the community. The project was located on a very challenging site with significant circulation obstacles including steep grades, a sensitive wetland, and a road with eight lanes of traffice. These challenges were woven together into a remarkable seamless design language that was realized across the entire site connecting the local bus station to the city hall and public library.

DESERT GARDEN AT CVIC GREEN

PROJECT DESCRIPTION The new Newport Beach Civic Center, combines formal and informal landscapes across a vertical grade change of 120 feet connecting an existing library to the local bus station. It was conceived as a new civic heart for the Newport Beach community and it is now beloved. Transformation of the existing site was an undertaking that required significant technical effort to allow for the realization of successful horticultural conditions. The park was conceived as a series of planting characters that respond to both design program and existing conditions, linked by a series of meandering paths. The site was transformed into a park setting that includes civic gardens, multiple meadows, habitat for native flora and fauna, trails, small structures to enhance park programming, and extensive planting. Sustainable practices including, but not limited to LEED and the Sustainable Sites Initiative Criteria were employed as metrics.


PUBLIC “The ideas and designs put forth by Sarah were creative and thoughtful, yet consistent with the overall approach and tenor of our community. Sarah has a great way of communicating with the public – listening as well as educating – that assured everyone that we were in good hands and were going to have a noteworthy but practical end product.” -Dave Kiff, City Manager Newport Beach, CA CIVIC GREEN AT CITY HALL

We have been working with CIM Group on two ground up tower projects in Oakland. 2 KAISER PLAZA AND 1100 CLAY STREET. For both we have promoted ground floor activation as a strategy for balancing the scale and square footage of the towers. We have worked through unique elements including specialty lighting such as a neon sign, pop up containers, and the introduction of more intimate planted areas at the sidewalk level.

CALISTOGA PROJECT DESCRIPTION The foreground planting of native grasses and sculptural agaves defines an elegant entry for the home. A dwarf olive hedge wraps the front porch of the of the house to unify the entry palette. The carefully considered planting requires minimal irrigation this dry Mediterranean climate. Moving around the house, the family living area and kitchen opens out onto a generous deck overlooking the oasis garden. All big water uses – the lawn, the pool, fruit trees, etc are located together here to increase the quality and intensity of water experiences where used. At the back of the house shade is found in the walnut terrace garden where a new seating area has been meticulously sited beneath the canopy of two historic walnut trees. Views of the Napa Valley hills beyond are framed by the walnut trees.

SPECIAL ATTRIBUTES AND FEATURES Three new gardens – the entry court, the oasis garden, and the walnut terrace are connected and defined by a long line of stone. This stone gesture is a continuation of the surrounding vineyard rows, transforming in height from path to wall to bench to serving counter based on one’s vantage point in the garden. Careful placement of windows and the composition of plantings created numerous elegant picture window views towards the garden on all sides of the home.


RESIDENTIAL THE RENOVATION OF THIS 1-ACRE SITE ARTFULLY COMPOSES an existing house, garage, and water tower in an elegant garden situated within the expansive vineyards of Napa Valley. The design borrows cues from the surrounding agrarian landscape and vernacular historic plantings to create a three-part garden of climate appropriate spaces for outdoor living. The garden is planted with heat tolerant and water efficient plants as to conserve the valley’s valuable but limited water supply.

GATEWAY PARK Located at the eastern touchdown of the spectacular new San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge, GATEWAY PARK is both a stopping point and a thoroughfare. An enormous daily population of 280,000 vehicles speeds past the site in cars, trucks, and buses en route to other locations. The new bike path on the bridge will bring many more people up close to the site—and the number of bikers and pedestrians is anticipated to increase as both Treasure Island and the Western span of the Bay Bridge complete bicycle and pedestrian access.

Bringing public engagement to existing community events has been a very successful tool for increasing public participation. At the Pleasant Hill Light Up the Night Celebration, we hosted a booth to solicit input about the new library. In exchange for filling out a survey we gave out booklights.We met lots of people who did not attend the official community meeting about the library and were happy to have a chance to participate. We learned kid friendly is a must, as many attendees were children and parents looking for a fun space where they can hang out, learn, and have fun. Many are interested in arts and crafts, tech, and performance related events.

NURTURE FORCE “AgeSong was “matched” with a landscape designer, Sarah Kuehl...Kuehl addressed the challenge by seeing it as an opportunity to fix multiple issues at once: 1) that as a society, we don’t value the aging process (of people, of things, or of plants), 2) that our elderly are suffering from isolation because traveling by public transportation or by foot can be difficult, and 3) that a lot of public landscapes are suffering because they don’t get regular maintenance...Kuehl also proposed something more overarching. She envisions an elite force of “nurturers” that would be highly visible in the community: akin and complementary to the police force, but dedicated to caring rather than protecting and defending. They would be trained in helping the elderly and serving as crossing guards, but also in landscape maintenance.” -Architect’s Newspaper Blog, October 20, 2010

EXPERIMENTAL GROW MELT PROJECT, THE LATE SHOW GARDENS The Grow Melt Project was part of the The Late Show Gardens, a sustainable garden show held in Sonoma, CA. Approximately, 20 x 40 feet overall, the garden was designed to provide a tangible human experience on the subject of climate change. The garden was installed for three days as part of the Late Show Gardens, a ground breaking event heralded as the first sustainable garden show. Rather than a static artifact, the garden changed over the duration of the show through the use of ice as a building material. Ice was a lure in the heat, but also a physical and emotional demonstration of loss anticipated with global warming.

CEDAR HILLS PROJECT DESCRIPTION Existing plants and their maintenance were expensive and intensive and the new planting design transformed this poorly gardened ‘suburban site’ with the use of native plants and a woodland inspired character. The resulting project uses less water, requires less maintenance, and the local planting identity speaks to the surrounding lands. Originally named the Cedar Hills Ivy Club, the landscape architects educated the client about the nature of Ivy as an invasive plant and the name of the apartment complex was changed to Cedar Hills. In the new central amenity space the existing pool was renovated to place it within a landscape created by planting, a brightly colored transparent fence on three sides, and a more opaque wood wall fence facing the parking lot.

SPECIAL ATTRIBUTES & FEATURES The Cedar Hills project brought adaptive re-use, good bike and pedestrian access, native plants and the intentional creation of community spaces to the suburbs. In addition to improving curb appeal for renters, the project has connected the site to the local flora, introduced a 10’-0” tall white garden gnome to the greater Portland area, and become the heart of the 400 unit community.

HOUSING WOOD STREET PROJECT DESCRIPTION Best contemporary practices for storm water management, planting, and urban design were composed to create three garden rooms. Privacy, semi-private spaces, and communal experiences have been structured within the garden rooms. Pavements in both roads and alleys were designed to encourage flexible use of space and community events as well as slower traffic. SITE PLAN

SPECIAL ATTRIBUTES & FEATURES Each garden room has a strong character intended to enhance the community as well as to provide variety. The garden is the most social with a bocce court and a communal barbecue area. The deck is the most contemplative and has multiple smaller spaces within the overall form. The green encourages play with a ping pong table, a lawn area, and numerous locations for seating. Planting was designed to be attractive year round through provision of a variety of textures and seasonal color as well as being low water.
