Wild Sitecrafting

Wild Sitecrafting is based on an intimate, sensorial, and pragmatic relationship to native forests and biospheres; it is a sitework paradigm where all elements of the biosphere have vested interests. This land science allows for low carbon techniques and use of local labor forces.  The site entry, the Portal, is a visible essence and breathes the declarative spirit of the place.

We have many tools for this event and one of them is our use of Biomimicry. Observations of existing natural systems direct us, and we use this information by employing site forces to our design advantage. We deploy our singular techniques, corralling the extant forces by involving them in passive systems, all low maintenance.

Wild Sitecrafting defines areas with character and usefulness for pathfinding, meandering through the site to all features and unusual topography (vales, amphitheatres, tors, copses, hillocks). It also sets a maintenance schedule that is well thought out and expedient. No need for blowers and mowers, just a small amount of maintenance the same time every year and you are ready for every season. This site responds well to all the criteria we have set.

Using sites and structures that reflect the very nature of where we are, who we are, and why we are, Moonshadow Ventures acquires property and builds in Puget Sound’s ancient woodlands.
