Introduction


One of Roslyn’s principle and defining assets is the preserved forest ridge surrounding the town.  Combined with the fields, cemetery and parks within the town, Roslyn’s green spaces tie the town together and create its unique character.  These design proposals seeks to link and enhance these parks and open spaces, collectively forming the green heart of Roslyn.

While remembering and respecting Roslyn’s historic past, the Green Links proposals would enrich Roslyn’s beauty for both visitors and the community.  These improved parks would be multifunctional, serving as community activity and gathering spaces, as well as economic generators.  Roslyn’s Green Links Master Plan highlights the 12 locations the Storefront Studio has taken into consideration with their individual proposals, linked with an overall idea of enhancing Roslyn’s green spaces.

Welcome Park

Welcome Park is a snapshot of Roslyn, showing that Roslyn offers rich history, a beautiful natural setting, and has the vision to be economically viable.  Most importantly, Roslyn has the community to bring all these together.  Jensen Cabin, which could be transformed into a visitor center or small museum, would be placed in Welcome Park to greet visitors with the rich history of Roslyn.

Welcome Sign Map


The studio was asked by The Roslyn Downtown Association to look at the existing city welcome sign, and to make proposals for enhancing and updating Roslyn’s entrance marker and community gateway.  The students researched the town’s physical and social character, and composed an image that they felt best represented the unique identity of Roslyn.  Taken together, they form a collective community portrait.

Mural Park


The temporary park is designed to be a public gathering area where various events can happen.  Food trucks and a bouncy castle will be placed on the site to bring in the crowd and create a relaxing family atmosphere.  A stage will be set up to allow events and performances to happen during daytime.  The site can be turned into an outdoor theater at night and the TV show, Northern Exposure, could be projected on the wall.

The idea of the proposal is to have a long mural painted on the existing fence which shows the skyline and the landscape of the Roslyn area.  The mural is broken down into 9 rectangular panels.  Each panel will be give to an artist or a group in the community to compose.  The designers can choose their preferred media and approaches as long as the three landscape lines on the mural area connected to the lines on the adjacent panels.

Museum Park


The proposed renovation of the existing museum is a combination of the historical character of the town and modern museum ideas.  A mezzanine provides more room for display.  Large windows open up like garbage doors to the view of the coal cars while letting more natural light in.  A frame addition in the back of the building gives visual connection between the front yard and backyard, as well as providing shelter for activities.

The proposal is for a community ‘P-Patch’ gardening space for Roslyn.  The garden would serve as an educational and experimental garden, a place to explore plants which grow well in Roslyn’s climate.  The space would feature outdoor amphitheater-style seating which could be used for educational events as well as community concerts and plays.

The ‘grandstand’ seating at Runje Field harkens back to Roslyn’s glory days of baseball by providing additional seating while maintaining a rustic aesthetic.  The bathroom renovation proposal from last year’s Storefront Studio is revisited, as is the playground seating.  The west corner of Pioneer Parks lends itself to a fire pit and benches for year-round stargazing.

Cottage Alley

The residences along Washington Street are prime locations for small local businesses.  In the back alley between W. Washington Avenue and W. Idaho Avenue there are outback buildings, unique to Roslyn, and also capable of supporting economic activity, uniting the alley and main street in business partnerships.  Commercial signs are considered as part of this study.

The Miner’s Park proposal intends to translate the historical and sacred elements of Roslyn into an interpretive path way.  It links the center of town to the edge of town, the present to the past, and the culture and history to the landscape.  It provides a path way for locals and visitors to explore Roslyn, commemorating the coal mining history.

Memorial Park


The cemeteries of Roslyn have a rich history, and many residents of Roslyn have ancestors buried beneath this ground.  The two proposals outlined here were designed as a way to honor and remember those buried here.  The Memorial Kiosk creates a sheltered place to display the code of conduct and history of the cemetery, while the Memorial Wall honors the veterans and their contribution to the country.   A retaining wall lines both sides of the road, visually tying both structures together.
