Congratulations to Landscape Ontario member Seferian Design Group, who was recently honoured with two DNA Paris Design awards.

The Burlington, Ont.-based landscape architectural design firm won in the Landscape Design/Private Gardens category and the Landscape Design/Parks & Public spaces, Educational, Community & Recreation Facilities category.

The award winning landscape design project, Simcoe Sophistication in Simcoe, Ont., featured a completely redesigned 19th century historical estate, where drainage became an important issue due to the very flat nature of the site. The project involved a year and a half of design work and three years of construction.

The award winning public space project, Cayuga Grand Vista Trail, spans a reclaimed CN Rail bridge across the Grand River. Designed to meet CSA S6-14 standard, the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code, the space also complies with all regulations under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

The awards, which honour the work of international architects and designers, were announced May 18, 2020.
