Langley, Washington, is a waterfront town on Whidbey Island that takes pride in being a community centered on the arts. With the need for maintenance to 2nd Street, the City of Langley took the opportunity to reconsider the function and design of a major street in the town.
Aided by intensive community collaboration, Framework and team produced a design strategy that integrates art, landscape, civic buildings, stores, and a web of narrow pedestrian routes that connect the town, strengthening community and business simultaneously.
