Description: GCH’s role for the project was to provide landscape architectural designs for the grounds and play area around the new gym at Our Lady of Guadalupe in West Seattle. As part of the project, GCH also designed several rain garden features that capture rainwater from the architecture in an artful manner. The rain gardens serve as aesthetic elements, anchoring the sides of the building while also offering potential educational resources for the school. GCH assisted in advancing the project toward potential LEED certification by incorporating storm water management opportunities, providing bike racks, and minimizing the need for irrigation throughout the project.
