As public space evolves, nature’s contribution to the value of a person’s experience is becoming more appreciated. Municipalities, private developers and architects are increasingly prioritizing the outdoor environment when considering a project. Often, the success of a project is directly related to the beautiful space it inhabits.
The landscape architect’s early involvement in land development is critical. Proper planning of fundamental elements like parking, site utilities, lighting and building placement can be the cohesive approach that turns a singular “new building” into a holistic “great project”.
The final convergence of the built environment and the natural site, is realized through the planting plan. The possible advantages of selecting the right plant for the right place are endless. Thoughtful planting can improve the user’s experience through aesthetics while also improving the overall environmental impact of a project through storm water management. Nature is a powerful partner.
As the founding principal, it is Kathryn Talty’s vision that has established the direction of the firm. Having been in practice for more than twenty years, her well-rounded perspective comprised of strong site design skills, project management and knowledge of the real estate development process will be an asset to any project. Combining various disciplines from her learned expertise, Ms. Talty’s goal is to provide site services unique to a landscape architecture firm.
Daniel joined the firm in 2020 after graduating from the Architecture program at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is a great asset to the team as hands-on collaborator on many of the projects that are produced in the office.
Emily is the newest addition to the team. She comes to the firm with experience in the residential landscape design and horticultural services arenas. She is a native Chicagoan and a graduate of the University of Minnesota.
