AboutEcotone


about_ecotone

We are a landscape architecture firm based in Portland, Oregon.

Our focus is on designing environmental solutions that inspire people and respect nature. We collaborate with forward-thinking architecture firms, municipalities, engineers, community organizations and private landowners on projects ranging from affordable housing and green streets to wetlands and parks. What motivates us is to see our work contribute to the quality of life in our communities, right now and for years to come.


OUR APPROACH

We believe the foundation of smart environmental design is a deep understanding of the natural ecology of each site as well as the unique needs of each client. Our creative process leads us to discover interesting intersections of environmental conservation or restoration, community development, aesthetic ambitions, and resource constraints. We are excited about the challenges of complex, large-scale landmark developments as well as those of wise designs that make smaller projects shine in surprising ways.

Good collaborative practices are important to us, and we are dedicated to see each project through with consistent, personal attention from start to finish. We enjoy the agility and the opportunities for direct collaborative relationships that come with being a small firm. And we enjoy interesting conversations about nature, design, and community. If you'd like to start one, or just as us a question please contact us.
