Basswood Residence

June 4, 2009

Another great design and install project. We’ve been working on this project over the last several years. It’s one of our favorites. Here’s a little taste to show how the gardens are coming along in the front yard. Notice how the steps we designed shift gracefully through the gardens. The gardens are really taking shape. They were planted about a year ago. Keep posted. We’ll get photos of the back soon. IMG_0878 IMG_0880 IMG_0887 IMG_0879 IMG_0883 IMG_0884 IMG_0882


Real. Beautiful. Roofs.

For anyone interested in pursuing a green roof, now may be the time. Soon there may be an additional financial incentive to install a green roof on your new or existing structure. This is on top of all the other wonderful benefits of a green roof.


[January 30, 2009] Senator Maria Cantwell from Washington State introduced the Clean Energy Stimulus and Investment Assurance Act of 2009 (S.320) legislation on Monday January 26 that, if adopted, would provide financial incentives for commercial and residential green roof installation. Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and the American Society of Landscape Architects worked together to help draft the section of the bill that is focused on the green roof incentive.

In 2005-06 Phillips Garden hired Alchemy Architects to add a weeHouse addition the our current design studio in Minneapolis. We love the weeHouse’s modern, modular design. Below are images of our new studio.
