This year we were honoured to be named as a finalist in the Western Living Designer of the Year for Landscape Design. This category was very competitive with most entries coming from the Vancouver area. We were thrilled to be part of such a amazing group of designers and to represent Alberta in the finalist group.
After collaborating with the students and staff at Westbrook Elementary School in Edmonton, we took a space that was overgrown and under used and turned it into an interactive outdoor classroom. The space tells a story about the province of Alberta. The water feature symbolizes the Rocky Mountains in the west (created by Metal Urges), the wheat impressions symbolize the farming all across Alberta and the art installation in the north-east corner represents the northern lights (created by Terry Frost), to name just a few key features in the site. There are animals prints located throughout the site which enables children who might not ever see an animal in the wild an opportunity to experience this.
