Integration Design Studio | Landscape Architect
by Glen Brouwer and Larry Sheehan (Carlsbad, CA)
With experience that ranges from custom residential landscape designs and master planned communities to commercial renovation projects and outdoor design for sacred spaces, Integration Design Studio strives to provide their clients with unique design solutions that are tailored to their individual needs and budget.
Founded by Landscape Architects Glen Brouwer and Larry Sheehan, the IDS team specializes in producing original outdoor designs that creatively respond to their intended purposes.
According to Glen and Larry the ideal landscape is a design that is created specifically for the individuals who will enjoy it. They have more than 45 years of combined landscape architectural experience and believe that the client should be just as involved in the design process as the architects and contractors. ‘Our role is to assist and guide our clients in the decision making process. This allows us to provide them with creative design solutions that are responsive to their program direction and budget.’
From luxurious residential garden designs in La Jolla to the trendy landscapes in Orange County designed for apartment communities, a successful outdoor environment requires communication and personalized attention throughout the entire design process. ‘The more connected our team is to each project, the more they will understand the project goals. We want everyone who touches the project to share the same vision, whether they’re consulting with the client or creating the end results,’ says Larry. This collaboration of talents and expertise pushes Integration Design Studio to the forefront of the landscaping industry.
In April of 2009, the firm won Sunset Magazine’s Dream Garden Award for the Phillips residence in Newport Beach. A tropical hideaway with magnificent views and enchanting water features, the landscape design was also recognized by the San Diego Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects with a Merit Award for Residential Design.
The Integration Design Studio team has an expansive portfolio, ranging from extensive master planned communities and luxurious resort landscapes to smaller residential gardens and sacred space design plans. ‘The diversity of our client base and the diversity of the projects that we are involved in allows us to be creative in our design solutions,’ says Glen. We can see this creativity at work in every Integration Design Studio project.
The fusion of bold colors, intriguing shapes, and subtle plantings that adorn the grounds of the Hotel Del Coronado is a revitalizing experience, while the lush hillsides of the Strand at Headlands are the ideal companion to the scenic sea views in Dana Point. The Rhoads residence in Corona del Mar is a secluded backyard getaway designed for relaxation and outdoor fun.
Glen and Larry began Integration Design Studio in 2003 to provide Southern California with creative landscape designs that are tailored to each client’s individual needs. Often collaborating with other award-winning architects, interior designers and contractors, the studio designs unique landscapes throughout the region and beyond.
Custom swimming pools and outdoor spas, exquisite outdoor kitchens, and intimate fire pits are common elements in an IDS residential design. Luxurious hardscapes, enchanting gardens, and sprawling recreational areas are integrated into many of the firm’s commercial projects.
Integration Design Studio offers a comprehensive solution for both commercial and residential landscapes, including developing the initial concept, design development, construction coordination, final installation review, and maintenance guidelines.
