Seton Phase 1

Client – Gibbs Gage Architects

Location – Calgary, AB

Date – Completed in 2014

Gibbs Gabe Architects engaged our team to provide landscape design services for the first phase of a planned 360 acre commercial centre in Calgary’s Southwest. The project scope included greenspace strategies such as vegetated swales, bioretention cells and a drought tolerant plant palette that penetrated into the site, rather than just along the perimeter.


  • Undertook both the urban design and pedestrian realm amenities design.

  • Employed simple, durable, basic construction materials in dynamic arrangements.

  • Developed an extensive naturalization strategy and utilized xeriscape principles in soft landscape design.

  • Created central bioretention element to collect rainwater runoff from parking lots and pedestrian hardscape areas.

  • Designed custom concrete benches to double as site lighting features.
