Communicating the importance of salvaging materials from existing structures.
The Bailey Farm development is the public amenity space for a 372 unit housing development located in Bothell, WA.
Miller Hull worked with The Wolff Company during schematic design to communicate the importance of salvaging material from existing structures, and preserving several prominent old growth trees as a way of carrying the project site history forward into the new design. Ownership’s buy-in on this concept resulted in shaping the project aesthetic and site character. Salvaged materials were repurposed as building rain screen cladding and site circulation was reworked to create interaction with the old growth trees along the project’s entry drive. Miller Hull’s continued involvement throughout the construction administration phase of the project has allowed for the continued development and strengthening of the design. This attention to detail and respect for the history of the site has resulted in a strong centerpiece for the development and has been recognized and appreciated by the neighboring residents.
