EPTDESIGN Year-In-Review

LASN 2023 Yearbook
by Allison Spicer, Marketing Director

Year In Review October 2023
In 2023, EPTDESIGN celebrated a year marked by remarkable achievements and sustained growth. Notably, Principal Nord Eriksson achieved a prestigious milestone, being elevated to the Council of Fellows of the ASLA, a testament to his exceptional contributions to the field.
The year witnessed significant changes in office locations, with our Claremont studio making a transition to a new, spacious location, allowing for the studio's continued development.

EPTDESIGN fostered a strong sense of community and collaboration within the company through a series of three cross-office events. These gatherings not only brought our staff together but also provided valuable opportunities to visit project sites and showcase our ongoing work.
Acknowledging our dedication to design excellence and our positive impact on the community, we proudly received two Quality of Life Awards from the Southern California Chapter of the ASLA. This recognition underscores the meaningful influence that EPTDESIGN has on the environments we touch.
Furthermore, 2023 saw the successful completion of several exciting projects, including the new Visitor Plaza at the Los Angeles Arboretum, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, and aquatic complex at Mt. San Antonio College, Simone Little Italy in San Diego - our first tower project to be completed in that city.
One of the year's highlights was EPTDESIGN's invitation by The Cultural Landscape Foundation to host a Garden Dialogue for the Eucalyptus Hill project. This event served as a platform to showcase our firm's expertise.
