(City of Weston, Florida – September 16, 2019) Landscape Design Workshop has won (2) 2019 Architecture MasterPrize™ Honorable Mention Design for their Botaniko project. The first award is in the Landscape Architecture / Large Scale Landscape Projects category and the second award is in the Landscape Architecture / Residential category.
One of the strategies of smart growth and sustainable communities is to promote infill development, Botaniko adopts and embraces this concept. The guiding idea was simple, if we want to reduce the pressure on the environment we have to re-evaluate current development within the urban area and redevelop existing under-utilized spaces in a resilient way. Botaniko, as the name suggests, is a community where the outdoor environment & lush landscape takes center stage. The project is located in the City of Weston, Florida. It is a 50 hectare (123-acre) master planned residential development with 125 modern home sites.
