Project Update: Meadow Branch Apartments Phase II

Phase II of Meadow Branch Apartments, a multi-family Luxury Living Community in Winchester, is underway. We are excited to share a few unique features.
 
This project is our first to design a Canine Activity Center. The center includes an indoor playground and a dog spa where owners can wash their pups. Perfect for dog-lovers and their pets, and relaxing and fun is had by everyone involved.
 
From the beginning of this project, environmental considerations have been woven into the design, and the design choices can even be seen all the way from a drone (pictures provided below by KBS). We used permeable pavers for some of the parking which is visible in some of the pictures. This type of pavement is gaining interest in North America and acts as a stormwater management system,  reducing heavy flow of run-off.
 
We also intentionally preserved many trees on-site, including two massive oak trees in the middle of the site which are also visible from the sky. This community makes movement and connection to natural-greenery even more accessible by connecting to a great walking trail and providing extensive bike storage.
