Project: Pearl Island




Pearl Island

Location: Archipelago de las Perlas, Panama

Located off the pacific coast of Panama, Sherwood collaborated with Hart Howerton to develop the master plan and phase one design detail for a new whole-island community that is now under construction. Sherwood led the effort  to map key opportunities and constraints, and to design green infrastructure systems and ecological connectivity while providing a sustainable approach to all infrastructure and circulation systems. Performance standards were developed in conjunction with the master planning documents for systems that will lead this island toward energy and water independence. An island-wide stormwater management plan was developed that integrates landscape-based best management practices with the urban systems and local restoration efforts.
