As an architect, I realize how critically important landscape architecture can be to provide the proper setting for a design. That is why we always recommend to our clients that strong consideration be given to retaining top landscape design talent. Working with Verdant Enterprises, as we did with the Kiawah Island "Healthy House" just completed this fall, was key in maximizing the potential for this site and the attributes that it contained. Thomas Angell and his staff worked carefully with the architecture, incorporating the clients' particular wishes and needs for their utilization of the site.
We have also had great experience collaborating with top talent like Sheila Wertimer Landscape Architect and Outdoor Spatial Design in Charleston. Charles Stick opened our eyes to the site making potential of a 24 acre Charlottesville estate site. It is a very important aspect to creating and making architecture that maximizes it potential and relationship to its particular context.
