Interstitial Connectivity

community_marketThe community market is a commercial structure that can support daily, weekly, or yearly events like farmers markets and commercial space for local artists. The space includes an indoor flexible space that allows for movement within and around various tables for vendors and an outdoor lawn space for temporary tents. When not occupied by vendors, the lawn can allow for a place for people to linger, with benches running along the path. Two paths run along both sides of the building, connecting the structure with the main street and the alley behind.

Interstitial Connectivity: Farmers Market

InterstitialConnectivityThe market structure is built of reclaimed local wood. Instead of it being pristine, the structure reflects the materials found around Fall City.

The market is meant to be a protected space that can be closed when not in use, but at the same time it is meant to be a very open structure. Translucent poly-carbonate on the roof allows for light to enter the building without it being too harsh. Sliding doors along the interior space allow for a very open space.

3. Street Renovation – Through a series of interventions that organize parking, prioritize on pedestrian access and circulation, and introduce a more coherent landscape plan, the streets of downtown Fall City are more walkable and facilitate better community spaces.

Interstitial Connectivity: Storefront Renovations

StorefrontRenovationsOne example of a storefront renovation is this existing building, located across from the Farmhouse Market. It is repainted with horizontal wood siding, drawing from other buidings in the area like the Prescott House and the Roadhouse. More traditional and consistent windows are added along with a porch that speaks to the porch across the street at the Farmhouse Market. The back of the building that faces the alley includes a mural by a local artist promoting the arts in Fall City and connecting to the potential art spaces in the alley.

Interstitial Connectivity: Farmhouse Market

farmhouseThe main changes done to the Farmhouse market include making it into more of a community hub due to its location across from the new pedestrian bridge. Its side along the main street has a community board where people can find out about local events. Windows are added along one side to allow for more light and openness, while the porch is extended to allow for more space for local produce and seating. The current parking area would still allow for parking, but could also be used temporarily for more farmers market stands or other local events.

Alley Connection

layoutmay17.inddTo create different layers of events and uses in the alley throughout the day and during special events, such as Fall City Nightz. Interventions include permeable pavings for pedestrians and trucks, outdoor seating areas and removal of fences, moving electrical cables to underground and creating a double framed structure that acts as a threshold to the alleys as well as holding up banners during events.

Alley Connection: Corner

layoutmay17.inddThe idea is to create a community corner that allows residents to gather and/or showcase their artistic talents. One way is by reusing the empty building lot as a community space with room for workshop, gallery and stage that opens up to the alley and corner park during events and festivals (“spillouts”). Existing fences are also removed to create a more porous condition between River Street and the back alley. A few parking lots are moved to the back and replaced by permeable paving to create an entrance to a pocket park with outdoor seating.

An overarching strategy to the central connection is activating the main axes of River St. and 336th Place through the intervention of pedestrian-oriented projects:

East Crossing: Bridge

EastCrossing_Bridge1This bridge location makes use of Fall City’s current landscape, avoiding destructive work, and responds to the pedestrian activity on different levels. By connecting directly to the main street, users will have the opportunity to connect directly to the ┬ánorth side of the river without any level change, and also have access to the lower bank of the south end, bringing all activities of Fall City into one connection location.

EastCrossing_Bridge_SectionThe East Connection protects the essence of Fall City, with a timber form reflecting the characteristic of the town and its low and minimal profile, preserving views to the landscape while offering new vistas for pedestrians who cross the river. The relationship of the river and the community is only strengthened with this bridge.

As a first exercise in getting to know Fall City, the students were asked to make a virtual visit to Fall City on-line and in the library. The students then designed a souvenir t-shirt that depicted the character they perceived.
