DWY Landscape Architects honored by ASLA


ringling2DWY Landscape Architects, led by David Young, has received three design awards from the Florida Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects.

The awards were for institutional design (The Ringling Waterfront Enhancement), residential design (renovation of a residence designed by Sarasota architect Guy Peterson) and conceptual design (an estate in Palm City, Florida).
The Ringling Waterfront Enhancement project focused on the area south of the Cá d’Zan, adding a “campiello” for events and a walkway lined with royal palms that runs along Sarasota Bay.
The residential project created outdoor spaces in keeping with the architecture while accentuating the site’s location and owners’ lifestyle.

The conceptual design was for a net-zero residence on the St. Lucie River that remains unbuilt because of the housing recession. Designed with Carlson Studio Architecture, the project includes a green roof, rain garden and man-made wetland to treat greywater for use in irrigation.
