Founded in 1991, Elysian Landscapes began with a focus on residential design that quickly blossomed into significant commercial work, with such projects as the Parker in Palm Springs, Balenciaga and new models for urban development like Platform in Culver City and Spring Street Lot in Chinatown.  Now a multidisciplinary studio, Elysian Landscapes continues to extend a finely detailed and hands-on approach to making projects at every scale.  As a design/build firm, making our work from conception to fruition, we are able to ensure our ideas and aspirations are executed with the highest quality and intent. 

Our practice seeks to reimagine the urban fabric as a breeding ground for interaction, awareness and enjoyment. We envision landscape as the medium of the contemporary city, and our work, across multiple private and public commissions, as one continuous habitat for the city of Los Angeles.  With an ambition toward creating dynamic environments, which join us to our context and community, our projects are vibrant, visible and integrated within our daily lives.

We are committed to rich and spirited collaboration, open dialogue and the exchange of ideas. Above all, we thrive on creating landscapes that are deeply personal and celebrate the relationship between planetary health, artistic expression and the ephemerality of the natural world.
