Firm Background:

Design Nature is a multi-disciplined consulting firm that provides site planning, urban design, and landscape architectural services to a range of private, public and institutional clients.

Our Vision:

At Design Nature we strive to provide creative, consistent, high quality work for each and every client. We listen carefully and observe intelligently. We carefully analyze and integrate information and synthesize it into plans and products tailored to meet each client's unique objectives and needs. We believe that responsible environmental design must be based on:

·A responsibility to create projects that are sustainable, balancing environmental, social and economic objectives within the communities where they are located.

·A thorough understanding of the physical, natural, historical, and social characteristics of a site and the regional context.

·A commitment to developing spaces and places that support and facilitate social relationships and interactions. This requires a sensitivity to human needs, comfort, and behaviors in varied settings, spaces, and conditions.
