Since founding my Studio-FV in 2008, I have brought my unique perspective on design, rooted in my background in architecture and my Architecture Master's degree, to landscape design, resulting in a significant impact on the field.
My work has been recognized by the architecture community, including a nomination for the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize (MCHAP) for Emerging Architecture in 2014. This nomination is a testament to my ability to create innovative designs that are both visually stunning and practical.
In addition, I have been published in several industry publications, including Landscape Architecture Magazine and Garden Design Magazine. These publications showcase my expertise in turnkey kitchen garden design and my commitment to promoting sustainable living through outdoor spaces.
In my work, I incorporate sustainable design principles, ensuring that my designs are environmentally responsible and designed to last. I believe that every element of a space must be carefully considered to create an exceptional outdoor space that promotes growth and connection.
My turnkey kitchen garden expertise is also noteworthy. I have a keen eye for creating functional and aesthetically pleasing kitchen gardens that blend seamlessly into their surroundings. My ability to design outdoor spaces that promote healthy living and sustainable food production is a testament to my commitment to creating experiences that make a real difference in people's lives.
Overall, my work in landscape design showcases my ability to integrate landscape art and architecture seamlessly. My designs promote sustainability, healthy living, and connection, resulting in outdoor spaces that are beautiful, functional, and transformative. With over a decade of experience in the industry and my passion for design, I continue to push the boundaries of landscape architecture and inspire others in the field.
