Client: CODA, Inc., Subconsultant to Thia Bankey Architect
Project: Alpha Apartments, Portland OR
MZLA served as the landscape architect for this 22-unit, low income housing project. The apartments included interior courtyards, a children’s play area, and an 18-car parking lot. Extensive new plantings were integrated into an existing landscape of large Douglas fir trees that were retained. Emphasis was placed on creating a calming environment rich with native and ornamental plants as this project provides housing for individuals and families recovering from the impacts of substance abuse.
