Dirtworks Landscape Architecture, PC was founded on the belief that excellence in design can heighten life’s experiences, honoring both the site and the individual to offer opportunities to connect to the larger world.
Our practice is dedicated to enhancing the essential human quality of identity by creating spaces that bridge differences in age, ability, and culture through shared experiences. Design solutions that emphasize a close connection to nature we believe are essential to the health and well-being of ourselves and our communities.
One of the strengths of the firm is its ability to balance institutional needs with individual needs, distilling complex programmatic and natural systems with individual experience. Since 1995, Dirtworks has sought projects that explore how design can improve the human condition. Grounded initially in the enhancement of personal health, and often designing for individuals with complex medical needs, our work has expanded over the years to encompass an ever-larger conception of health, including community and environmental health. We believe these form a continuum that must be approached holistically.
This integrated approach to design is best practiced on collaboration. Strengthening the firm’s creativity is our broad organizational base, allowing us to work closely with our clients so that we may respond to diverse needs and challenging sites. Regional national and international specialists, are often enlisted to aid us to both articulate and solve today’s specialized problems so that our designs are appropriately dynamic, cost effective, and engaging.
