PROJECT: Landscape Architecture

Dorn Residence - LEED Gold

Boise, Idaho


Construction Value:


Shon Parks, LA worked with homeowners and the project architect to create a unique LEED Gold landscape with enduring quality, a modern, but timeless character, and an efficient use of materials and resources. Within the two acre site, a looping pathway separates a naturalized landscape from the clean, intensely programmed landscape around the home.  Using largely drought tolerant plants, an efficient irrigation system and limited lawn areas, the project is highly efficient in water use, allowing sufficient water for a small orchard and raised bed garden.  Around the home, solar heated lap pool, an outdoor kitchen and patios extend living spaces into the outside.
