Renton – Repair Introduction


Recycle Repair Reweave

The activation of existing interior courtyards in the “Old Town” downtown can be realized through collaboration between the city, businesses, and property owners. ¬†Economics uses include farmers market, outdoor movies, and exterior dining.

Maintain Positive Assets, Both Physical and Social

“The most amazing thing that I have noticed in Renton is the presence of hidden courtyards. ¬†What appeared to be a crack in the wall, turned into the entrance to a very small, but tastefully organized, playground for kids.” – UW Storefront Studio student Marijana Misic
