We are designers. Most of our work is outside. Sometimes we work inside and even then, we’re thinking about the outside. So what that really means is that we alter, tweak, transform, nudge, encourage and sometimes outright over-haul the spaces that people occupy every day, helping to make them more elegantly useful. When space is useful, it becomes meaningful and if it also brings pleasure because it is beautiful, it develops the power to stick. This ‘sticky- index’ is important. Sticky landscapes are memorable, and become placeholders for our identity as individuals, families, communities and a culture. Sticky is good.
Changing the landscape requires serious commitment regardless of scale. Anyone that has invested sweat equity and a few dollars planting bulbs in the fall and then patiently waited until the spring to enjoy their floral display understands the kind of perseverance required to make even a small transformation. This same individual also understands how disappointing it is to have made an effort that doesn't meet expectations. This is where we come in. We make it our priority to help our clients invest wisely.
We understand this necessary dedication of resources and time to achieve a truly memorable, efficient and elegant project. We actively collaborate with our clients and consultants to collectively establish project goals. These goals guide the creation of landscape spaces that are sensitive to the existing subtleties of site dynamics, elegantly respond to the functional needs of the client, consider historical context, and use appropriate materials and construction techniques. While every project is a unique journey unto itself we remain committed to these objectives whether the project is a small residence or a large downtown plaza.
