Judges Statement:
Design-build landscape services transformed this former lumberyard into a 30,000-sq ft retail development and features an array of upscale
tenants. From concept through installation, our approach emphasized environmental responsibility, water conservation and innovative on-site stormwater and waste water
management.
Developed in a city with runoff issues and years of insensitive development, Malibu Lumber Yard underwent intense public scrutiny in a strictly regulated region.
The result was the creation of an iconic destination and a prototypically sustainably designed project in the commercial center of Malibu. Project elements include water
conservation, stormwater treatment, FSC certified wood and reduction of heat island effect. This retail project communicates a clear message that sustainable design is
comfortable, beautiful and more fun than typical landscape design.
