On the eve of the Olympics as team USA prepares to win lots of Gold & Silver medals in Sochi… kokobo takes home TWO GOLDS and SILVER at LINLA awards!!!
LINLA, the Long Island Nursery and Landscape Association, is a New York State professional association started in the early 1960’s.
kokobo wins big!
Our team happily accepted THREE awards; Two Gold and One Silver! kokobo’s submissions this year were in direct contrast to each other as one was a large rooftop in the financial district, one a suburban property on Long Island; and one a small backyard in Queens.
A petite backyard in Queens received a much needed makeover. After weeks of hard work the changes made to this humble backyard made a world of difference, almost unrecognizable from its previous state!
A Massapequa family with a love for traveling, desired renovations to their home influenced by two of their favorite destinations; One of them Thailand and the other Bali. The team worked diligently to make this limiting space a proper fusion of both places.
In New York City the newly designed and constructed communal rooftop, has made its way from loud and imposing utility structures to warm and cozy nooks. All of which can be enjoyed by the residents and their guests year round.
At the Banquet…..
Now, back to our “night out”. The evening was informative as well as fun. During the cocktail hour, we were able to view all the competitive portfolios with all the feedback from judges. As dinner was served, a wonderful slideshow and commentary was provided highlighting all of the winner’s projects with amazing before and after pictures as well as detailed construction pictures showing all of the challenges and intricate steps required to complete the incredible projects.
“As always, this year’s LINLA awards dinner proved to be an amazing celebration of the top landscape designers and their projects in our region. With design firms, suppliers, vendors and installers present, it was a fantastic evening to review and recognize the different styles, budgets and materials that go into each award winning design. I was very proud to be a part of such projects and look forward to all the future designs that may be recognized as well. Can’t wait for next year!”
– Zach Madarash, Production Manager
“It was another fun evening at the Milleridge Cottage and so great to see a fresh display of project types! We got to welcome a few new faces and names to the community who provided a different view and practice to the entries and the field of landscape design moving into 2014. It was an honor to be a part of the celebration and to be recognized.”
– Kaylin Rostron Senior Landscape Designer
