Designing garden & landscape

Going wilder ...

During Andrew's 20 years in the profession, his attraction to a more naturalistic style of Garden & Landscape architecture has grown steadily and is still evolving.


Going wilder is a theme Andrew is more and more interested in. 

Going wilder or re-wilding tackles several challenges we are faced with in these urgent times of climate change.

At the same time, it can enrich our experience of the natural world directly around us and re-establish our relationship with nature.


What started as a fascination for the romantic narrative of lush, local based flora in contrast with modernistic architecture, has developed into an ever growing awareness of our inter-connectedness with the natural world.


This awareness of inter-connectedness leads him to work with nature in a way that supports solving todays challenges. His work embraces the complexity and diversity of the natural world around us in combination with man’s creative capabilities.

Andrew works both in Canada and The Netherlands where he is well known for his subtle and minimalistic design approach. Andrew is always curious about new concepts in garden and landscape architecture. He is driven to find the intersection, that perfect balance between the natural and the human, where nature not only welcomes but embraces architectural gestures.


He works to strengthen the sense of place by connecting with the underlying landscape. Andrew believes every place tells the story of the landscape it belongs to. A garden's connection with its natural surroundings is a given, which can be enhanced through a well balanced composition of lines and surfaces, together with a sensitive selection of plant communities. 


Andrew’s garden designs explore the contrast between the natural landscape and architecture, striving for a balance between the spontaneous expression of nature and minimalist architectural interventions. His intention is to allow the natural, intuitive beauty of the landscape to express itself and to enhance the connection with its surroundings by framing nature in a humble and minimalistic way.


Inquiries about Andrew's design philosophy and approach to your property or development can be made by contacting him.
