Upon graduating with my Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Florida in 2011, I started a small design build company which specializes in the creation of outdoor living spaces and unique reclaimed furniture.

I place a value on the materials we use and the stories they tell.  Each design is steeped in process, distilled down to its most basic components, and fortified for structural stability with function as the driving force behind form.

I pride myself on turning ordinary spaces into extraordinary places, and focus on incorporating the existing beauty of the site into new designs.

We focus on the use of Native and Florida friendly plant materials, which reduce the water use and maintenance requirements.  We also focus on the incorporation of reclaimed and salvage materials.  Not only do they provide a unique aesthetic and a structural integrity that modern architectural materials often lack, but they remove the need to extract new raw materials as well as diverting waste from landfills.
