Orange County Great Park Neighborhoods
Irvine, Calif.
Governed by an overarching ecological landscape plan, the Great Park master plan provides a landscape vision for the nearly 4,000-acre former El Toro Marine base. The plan prioritizes functioning open space with a greenway and trails system that connects restored habitat and stream channels, a regional park, premier athletic facilities, and a system of community parks. Native and regionally sensitive plant communities respond to local topographic characteristics and create a functioning landscape infrastructure system that blends harmoniously with the built environment. The projects vision prioritizes pedestrians and cyclists and provides a safe circulation network that connects people to the parks and the surrounding amenities. Additionally, a growing collection of public art sited throughout this network provides visitors access to an expressive range of culture that reflects the character of the region.

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
The Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is one of Hawaii's most successful resorts and second home communities. BrightView Design Group's original design created a private, tropical garden atmosphere, while infusing large planting gestures into the property's relatively spartan lava landscape. A second phase was developed in 1999 that included detailed design for the entry, primary roads, courtyards, clubhouse, beach house, and golf course. BVDG also completed work on a new outdoor spa treatment and garden, the Beach Tree Restaurant renovation, and an extensive post-tsunami renovation in 2011. Most recently, BVDG redesigned the members-only Canoe Club which includes a negative-edge swimming pool and spa, a retail/ocean services building, and canoe storage. Another current project is a heated pool with infinity edges overlooking Kings Pond, a 1.8 million gallon 'aquarium' carved out of natural lava rock that is home to more than 4,000 tropical fish from 98 different species.
