2018 Best of Design Award winner for Landscape – Residential: Folding Planes Garden
Designer: Colwell Shelor Landscape Architecture
Location: Paradise Valley, Arizona

Colwell Shelor Landscape Architecture conceived the Folding Planes Garden project to complement the strong architectural outline of the house it contours. The eclectic landscaping incorporates a judicious amount of stark minimal forms and bold sculptural desert vegetation. The hardscape concept begins with a white concrete walkway that snakes from the street through specimen cacti before terminating at the black aperture of the home’s entrance. Resembling a dry gypsum lake bed, a white salt finish concrete deck continues from the front to a patio in the rear. A basalt house plane cuts between the main path, while a central glass tile pool reflects the sky and cactus wall beyond
