As a landscape architect, Steph appreciates that every project presents an opportunity to connect people to nature and to each other. She finds delight in the design process; in distilling the essence of a place in a way that responds to and resonates with the site. She enjoys crafting details and seeing built projects evolve over time.
Focused primarily on urban placemaking and park design, she enjoys working on a variety of project types and scales, as well as collaborating with designers and clients who bring positive change and strive to blend beauty, function, and renewal through design. Most of her projects have been within the greater Puget Sound’s public realm, navigating its complex agencies, for its diverse communities and with respect for its dynamic ecologies.
Steph holds a Bachelor of Science in Forestry and a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley, where she also taught several design studios and drawing classes. She grew up splitting her time between Buenos Aires and Los Angeles, but is happy to have found a home in the Pacific Northwest. She enjoys spending as much time as possible outdoors, backpacking, hiking or cycling.
