Salmon Bay Natural Area
J.A. Brennan developed the design and construction drawings for the Salmon Bay Natural Area overlook, which extends a pocket park over the edge of the hillside and provides spectacular views of the Salmon Bay Estuary, the historic Hiram-Chittenden Locks, and marine traffic. We designed a deck that recalls the area's maritime industry and a plaza which evokes the whirlpools that emerge near the locks. Collaboration with the interpretive signage designer resulted in an interpretive program that tells the story of the area.
