Sora Pool at Presidential City, Philadelphia, Pa.

ThinkGreen was employed to design the pool complex for a residential redevelopment project on the outskirts of Philadelphia. The existing pool complex, in a state of neglect, was transformed into a refined and sophisticated space where residents are able to disconnect from life's hectic demands while recharging and relaxing in a resort-like atmosphere. Sora Pool includes a lap pool, an infinity edge lounge pool with partially immersed lounge seating, family-friendly wading pool. Hot tubs, outdoor kitchen spaces, cabanas, and a variety of unique spaces for lounging, and lush vegetation were also incorporated into the design. Inspired by East Asian design themes, the pool and amenities provide a place for residents to peacefully escape.

Miquon School, Conshohocken, Pa.

The design team was commissioned to provide a schematic master plan for a new Learning Commons at the Miquon School in Conshocken, Pa. The Miquon School is a small, independent progressive school that embraces the natural world and the environment as opportunities for children to wonder, inquire and discover. The focus of the design was on the library building, which was considered 'The Heart of the Campus.' The building was sited to take advantage of existing slopes and blend the building into the natural landscape. Boulders and logs are terraced incrementally along the side of the building to allow for ample seating and provide access to the proposed green roof.

Sunset Park, Ocean City, Md.

The design team was commissioned to provide a new master plan for a waterfront park in Ocean City, Md. The site previously consisted of a 75-foot-wide right of way with asphalt road and sidewalk on both sides, which sheeted all precipitation and runoff directly into the bay. The design team took a sustainable approach, transforming the site into a lively space where festivals, concerts, open air markets and other community events could be held. Native vegetation, porous paving, interpretive signage and innovative pedestrian circulation provide the infrastructure for a successful urban space while reconnecting visitors with the natural environment.

Woodland Avenue Pedestrian Plaza, Philadelphia, Pa.

In 2011, the City of Philadelphia introduced its Pedestrian Plaza Program, with the intention of making city streets safer for pedestrians and drivers alike by converting underutilized street segments into public space. The existing traffic triangle at the intersection of 42nd Street and Woodland Avenue in the Spruce Hill and University of the Sciences neighborhoods was a bleak space with no ecological or social benefits for the community. The design / build team created hand-crafted, movable wooden planters using reclaimed rustic white oak and salvaged floor joists from a locally renovated row home. The focal point of the plaza is a large planter constructed of logs from fallen trees salvaged from a local cemetery. Umbrellas, chairs and native plantings transformed the space into a destination for locals.
