Byron Douglas Studio is a
Landscape Architecture practice based in Cape Town, South Africa, which
specializes in innovative design solutions for exquisite, lasting landscapes,
both urban and rural. The demands this
approach, surrounded by two oceans with an environment characterized by varying
climatic, geological and topographical conditions.
The objective is to create unique landscapes,
considering individual site and client needs. Each site instinctively guides
the design solution through its location, micro-climate, soil conditions,
slope, vegetation and architecture. Collaboration with the client, architect or
developer, is encouraged, empowering the design to fulfill a vision in terms of
the finished landscape.
Byron Douglas Studio embraces
a contemporary, ecological and sustainable design-style. Hard and soft
landscaping elements are integrated with art, sculpture and water. Simple and
rational hard landscaping compliments the architecture and interior design,
using locally sourced materials wherever possible. Soft landscaping encourages
bold swathes of colour, form, foliage, texture and scent, using endemic,
indigenous and coastal plant species.
The ultimate goal is the realization of memorable,
interactive landscapes, which are relaxing and beautiful, all the while
promoting healthy environments for people and wildlife.
