Creative Environments AZ, one of Arizona’s most respected landscape architecture firms, has earned a slew of accolades in their 60-plus years in business. In 2018, the renowned pool and landscaping company, along with BSB Design, Est Est, Inc, and Toll Brothers, Inc, earned the prestigious Golden Nugget Award of Merit in 2018 for the category of Best Indoor/Outdoor Living for their part in making The Cholla in Gilbert, AZ.
The Cholla is a beautiful marriage of traditional Southwest charm and modern elegance. It features an impressive tower, charming interior courtyard, and impeccably manicured garden at the front, along with an elegant walkway. In back, the home features two covered patios, one of which connects with the indoor family room. The outdoor living space is the dream of any Arizona resident, with a spacious, streamlined design and inviting serenity ideal for hosting, gathering, and relaxation.
Renowned for their exceptional talent and workmanship, Creative Environments AZ is known throughout the state for designing and creating smart, eye-catching outdoor living spaces, landscapes, and hardscapes for residents of Gilbert, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, and surrounding areas. The Cholla is one of many shining examples of their exemplary work.
The Golden Nugget Awards are an annual honor presented by the Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC), the largest tradeshow of its kind in the Western United States. Attracting hundreds of the most talented homebuilders and landscape designers from the U.S. and around the world, to say competition is fierce at the PCBC is an understatement. The select few crowned winners, simply put, the best of the best.
“The Gold Nugget Award winners reflect our industry’s best, brightest, and most innovative architects, planners, and builder/developers,” said Judging Chairman and Gold Nugget ceremonies administrator Lisa Parrish, in a 2017 interview with Builder Magazine. “We applaud them all, and we’re thrilled to recognize them with a celebration of merit and grand award winners.”
Each year, Merit winners and one Grand Prize winner are selected for each of 50 categories. These include single-family production, custom homes, commercial, office space, renovated projects, mixed-use, affordable, multi-family projects, and site planning. Entries are judged on several criteria, including originality, innovation, and impact.
“We are proud to be one of the largest and most highly regarded pool and landscape companies serving Arizona with innovative and creative outdoor spaces,” a spokesperson for Creative Environments AZ said. “Creative Environments has consistently remained a leader in the field winning both local and national awards as well as being named the #1 Landscape Designer in Phoenix by metro area residents.”
Creative Environments’ other accolades include the 2018 Award of Merit for Best Landscape Design, NAHB Gold Award in 2015 and MAME award for “Best Outdoor Merchandising” in 2017, as well as the Golden Nugget “Home of the Year” Grand Award in 2017.
