Sun Systems Campus

Atelier provided master site planning and landscape architecture for this corporate headquarters located on the shoreline of Cap Sante harbor in Anacortes. The 8-acre site incorporates public shoreline access and parking for 350 vehicles. Parking, storm water conveyance, and landscape improvements were designed to minimize disturbance of contaminated subsoils from previous lumber mill operations, and to utilize large volumes of harbor channel dredging spoils that had been deposited on the site. Irrigation is limited to a 15,000 SF active lawn, underlain with perforated drain lines control subsoil infiltration. Native shoreline plantings and adapted ornamentals were used to vegetate sculpted berms constructed from the dredge spoils.
