Naturalistic Approach ...

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.


The naturalistic approach and staying close to the original natural landscape are concepts Andrew is increasingly interested in. 

This approach tackles several challenges we face in these urgent times of climate change. Think caban capture and biodiversity support. 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 interconnectedness with the natural world.

Andrew works in Canada, The Netherlands and internationally.

He is well known for his subtle and minimalistic landscape design approach.  Andrew is always searching for unconventional solutions and new concepts in the landscape architecture profession..


With his experience and his award-winning approach, he works to strengthen the sense of place by connecting with the underlying landscape. Andrew believes every place tells the story of the landscape to which it belongs. There is always a conscious or subconscious connection to the landscape and a good landscape design response to that. 


Andrew’s landscape architecture explores 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.
