As Senior Project Manager and Lead Designer at Walker Macy, Dorothy led the design and construction administration for The Linden, a mixed use 130 unit apartment and commercial building. Exterior spaces included a 7,000 sf green roof, 11,000 sf on-structure garden terrace, and a 4,000 sf on-structure courtyard. The scale of the building didn't allow for all water to be maintained on site, so in addition to providing a wonderful amenity for the apartment dwellers, the intensive planting on both the courtyard level and the garden level provide a comprehensive water filtration system that filters to stormwater planters on grade. The extensive green roof systems also work to filter and maintain water on site.
The exterior areas provide landscape experiences of the pacific northwest to the apartment dwellers.
