Bal Harbour, FL - Landscape Design Workshop has won 2019 World Architecture & Design Awards Second Place Award for their project Villa Magnolia. The villa derives its name from the graceful Magnolia trees planted throughout the site.
These trees are used as a buffer from the adjacent lots and provide scale and privacy. Majestic Canary Island Date Palms frame the entry to the vehicular arrival court. Lush tropical planting is used throughout the site to offer texture, color and a counterpoint to the art work.
A sculpture garden featuring the owner’s art collection wraps around the house. Landscape Design Workshop designed the sculpture garden so it can be experienced from either the arrival court, the pool deck, or the interior spaces. The paving material for both the vehicular arrival court and the pool deck is tumbled marble bricks, creating a visual connection between the outdoor spaces and the house stone veneer.
Landscape Design Workshop is an award-winning landscape architecture and planning design studio located in Boca Raton, Florida. The atelier studio specializes in designing resorts and resort-like communities that embody the tropical lifestyle experience. Their work provides a strong and unified identity designed to enhance the residents’ well-being and quality of life.
