KWLS Awarded VA ASLA Presidential Award of Excellence for Nexton Brighton Park

Kennon Williams accepted the award at the VA ASLA’s Annual Meeting at Natural Bridge State Park on August 24, 2018.

The design of Brighton Park is based on a topographic and ecologic understanding of its location in Nexton, a new pedestrian-oriented community in the South Carolina Low Country near Summerville. The park is the centerpiece of the landscape master plan for the Neighborhood District, that weaves a closely connected network of parks, pedestrian ways, and ecologic corridors into the development.

The plan converts a pine plantation monoculture into a community gathering place that restores, reveals, and celebrates the environmental qualities of the Carolina Low Country.
