Triad wins award for cottage development

At last month’s Professional Awards, the Washington Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (WASLA) selected the Danielson Grove project of Kirkland’s Triad Associates as the “Best in Residential Design.” Over 150 attendees also singled out the Danielson Grove “cottage development” project in North Rose Hill to receive the People’s Choice Award from the 30 other submitted projects. The competition was open to all landscape architects registered with the State of Washington.

Grove achieved the award on a number of fronts – its stormwater management, vegetated swales, water detention, pervious surfaces and its basic premise that ‘small is beautiful. The jury also commended the City of Kirkland for its Demonstration Housing Project Ordinance and sees Danielson Grove “as a model for other communities.”
