One of our landscape architects got to visit the University of Idaho last week and see our 7th Street Improvement project. It is still awaiting final completion but looked great with the plum trees in bloom. The goal of this project was to create a pedestrian mall here on 7th Street, which is the beginning of campus tours, and match the branding and character of the rest of the campus. Go, Vandals!

#ThrowbackThursday Idaho Central Credit Union

By | Architecture, Construction, Landscape Design, News | No Comments

#ThrowbackThursday to one of our favorite corporate landscape architecture projects in Chubbuck, Idaho for Idaho Central Credit Union. The Bernardo Wills landscape architecture team worked with Lombard Conrad Architects in Boise, Idaho to make the ICCU master plan and corporate campus a reality. The plan included entry sequence, parking, future building locations, corporate amenities such as the Data Center Building, and a central courtyard plaza and landscape.  The courtyard plaza became is an essential centerpiece for the development and consists of a substantial water feature designed to showcase local geology with a fountain/pool, representative of 1000 Springs near Hagerman, Idaho.  The design included a garden-esque style greenspace at the entry and corporate amenities such as an outdoor kitchen, trellis, putting green multi-use sports court, and gathering spaces. Who wants to hit the putting green after work? Count us in!
