During our second year, Arkos Design continued to grow our staff and expand our design services.
Landscape architecture was added to complement architecture and interior design and provide a full 
design team for our projects.  This second year was significant in establishing our identity, with many of 
our core staff members joining us at that time.

The additional staff led to the integration of their skills and personality into the Arkos Design culture.  Also at that time, we instituted many of the social traditions that we enjoy together outside of the workplace. We have a 
passion for these events and believe our working relationships are strengthened by these social interactions.  In 2006, we went on our first camping trip, celebrated with our first Halloween party, and held our first Christmas bowling party. 

Our new client relationships and significant projects that year contributed to our growth and our future success.

Certification Class was No Picnic

I am fortunate to have found a profession that connects people and nature.  Landscape+Architecture…simple, right?  But that doesn't mean that I actually get to spend a lot of time directly connecting with nature in my daily work.  Instead, as with most working professionals, I spend the majority of my day in an office, either at my desk, in a conference room or in front of a computer.   Seniors spend more time indoors because access to outdoors becomes more challenging as they age.  Children have electronic entertainment keeping them indoors, and many haven’t really learned how to play and enjoy the outdoors.  People who grow up in highly urban areas may be afraid of nature. Yet, we inherently know that nature is good for us, we feel it in our bones.  It’s been proven with extensive research. We are a part of nature and it’s good for us to interact with it in whatever ways we can, even if it’s a view out a window (more on that later!).
