A garden is a unique reflection of the owner. Our landscape architects are driven to provide site design and landscape solutions that reflect the character of a client and their home. We find no greater satisfaction than successfully integrating a client’s vision and needs into a well-thought-out plan that is site sensitive, allows for outdoor living, provides four season appeal and increases the property value while meeting the client’s budget expectations.
The team at SCJ Studio Landscape Architecture, located in Seattle, are masters in residential landscape design. Some of their projects are highlighted on this site, but for a complete portfolio of their work visit SCJstudioLA.com.
Our design team members consider more than just code requirements when developing a planting plan for a commercial project. The experience of a customer or visitor to a commercial facility is formed the minute they enter a site, and we strive to provide a high level of “curb appeal.” Commercial landscapes are often driven by strict budgets and the code requirements of a given zoning district. We develop creative and unique landscape plans that meet budget and code requirements while enhancing a user’s sense of enjoyment and experience while visiting a retail or office setting.
Parks, Planning, Trails & Open Space
We are “parks people” at SCJ Alliance. Parks provide an escape from day-to-day activities for children and adults alike. Our landscape architects work closely with our clients to develop parks and natural recreation opportunities that are responsive to the users, site sensitive and budget responsive.
We put ourselves in the students’ shoes when designing for schools, and we aim to create spaces where they feel not only welcome, but inspired. Our designs incorporate pockets of explorable landscape areas, allowing students to engage in outdoor classroom activities and interact with the landscape. Landscape architecture services for schools and universities include everything from irrigation design to playgrounds and ball fields. We strive to encourage students’ appreciation, enjoyment and care for the natural world around them.
Streetscapes & Urban Design
Urban designs that focus on people are critical for developing vibrant public spaces and encouraging pedestrians to linger in commercial districts. Understanding public spaces are an important part of the urban fabric, our landscape architects frequently partner with our civil engineers in designing urban corridors that feel safe and inviting. Plazas, pocket parks and gardens all provide an opportunity for people to gather, creating spirit and vitality for our much-loved urban spaces.
