A Word About Landscape Architecture and Garden Design

Check out the Barkitecture Video!

Here’s a link to a video of May 24’s “Barkitecture” event at the Seattle Design Center, sponsored by the Seattle edition of “Luxe Interiors + Design Magazine.”   I designed the landscape for Team Ripple ‘s entry, “Bau-Wau Haus,” which won the award for Best Work of Art  in this whimsical upscale doghouse design contest and auction.  See recent blog posts for more information.  The video was produced by Sotheby Realogics, the official realtor for the doghouse auction, and I’m pleased to report that “Bau-Wau Haus” sold at auction to an urban couple with two Chi-hua-huas.  The summer 2012 issue of Luxe will include an 8 page spread on the designs and the dog costume contest.

Brooks Kolb Wins 2 Awards in May, 2012!

I am pleased to announce that as a key member of two terrific professional teams, I was the recipient of two awards in May, 2012.   First, on May 15, The Friends of Seattle’s Olmsted Parks received Historic Seattle’s Community Advocacy Award for the Volunteer Park Seattle Landmark Designation at the Fourth Annual Preservation Awards Ceremony, held at the Good Shepherd Center in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood.  Then, on May 24, Team Ripple’s design entry for Luxe Magazine’s “Barkitecture” event and auction, held at the Seattle Design Center, won the award in the “Best Work of Art” category.  It is not often that I can boast of two awards in one month:  it has never happened before!  Look for more detailed information about both awards in two forthcoming blog entries.
