Venice Island Residence

Type: Sustainable Design
Location: Venice, FL
Year Completed: 2009

Michael A. Gilkey, Inc. was pleased to collaborate with Jonathan Parks Architect in creating a sustainable landscape for this Venice Island residence, architecturally inspired by the principles of origami. We used native plant material and recycled aggregate to create a modern Florida-Friendly garden, and incorporated a custom designed rainwater harvesting eco-fountain in the front yard.  The use of turf was limited by using native wildflowers for lawn areas.
