Overview:

The Idaho Supreme Court building is an iconic International styled building in concrete and glass, with vertical lines on a raised horizontal structure and esplanade.  

In 2015 T-O Engineers completed plans to update the building’s landscape design around the esplanade and the perimeter of the building and parking lot.  Using grasses that mirror the vertical columns, in combination with weeping flowing trees, and colorful trailing plants along the esplanade, the landscape strengthens the architectural forms while simultaneously softening the concrete mass with trailing lines of color.
