More from the University of Idaho! The Bernardo Wills Architects landscape architecture team supported the University’s efforts to make improvements to 7th Street as it runs through campus. This project sought to create a more pedestrian-friendly corridor and a better access point to the Pittman Center, where campus tours originate. These improvements allow the University to put its best foot forward in recruiting new students, showcasing the campus’ natural beauty and character.
Our landscape architecture team carries a diverse array of projects in both the public and private sectors. On the public side, they are currently managing multiple parks and recreation master plans, waterfront park designs, pedestrian trails, higher education plaza design and construction administration, athletic fields, and state hospital site planning. On the private development side, the landscape architecture team plays a crucial role in developing multi-family site plans, supporting the architecture team, and bringing the most efficient site plan to the client. They are also currently working on financial services and retail landscape architecture.
The Festival at Sandpoint returns this year with an amazing lineup and a new field. During the Sandpoint Parks and Recreation Master Plan process, artificial turf was considered to ensure safety for athletes and a longer season of play. However, we had to ensure that the Festival at Sandpoint could still utilize the field for their needs. As the Bernardo Wills Architects landscape architecture team designed the War Memorial Field improvements, a special anchor system was placed under the turf to support the iconic festival tent. Additionally, designers planned for the increased pedestrian traffic and semi-truck access. Check out these photos from set up last week. The best part is that when the Festival ends, kids and teams will be able to practice the very next day with little disruption.
