Landscape Architecture

Landscape architects at SMMA approach each project as a creative process of exploration and problem-solving to design beautiful, meaningful, and pragmatic spaces.

Our goal is to help clients achieve their ambitions with designs that integrate natural and man-made systems in context with their surroundings, as well as embody each site’s unique essence of place.

 

We develop clear and coherent designs for each diverse project, striving to enrich the daily lives of its users. From dense urban development to suburban corporate facilities to educational institutions, SMMA’s designs celebrate the inherent characteristics of each site. Our vision is both near and far—realizing that designs must solve immediate aesthetic and functional needs in the short term, but also remain relevant and cohesive in the long term, as plantings mature and come into their own.
