The Kendall County Courthouse Addition introduced some exceptional challenges with the need for security and surveillance. A compromise was reached between the County Board’s desire for a lush native landscape with an abundance of trees and the Sheriff’s concerns over views through the site and potential threats. The result is a native treatment around the stormwater basins and perimeter of the site with shade trees selected and placed to provide clear views through the site. Foundation plantings were specifically designed to accent the architectural details while being mindful of the security concerns of creating hiding places.
