A site is defined by so much more than the buildings. It is also identified by its aesthetic appeal and the functionality of the space. Digging deeper, we find concern for safety and security, circulation, and ease of use. Overall, a site is defined by the experience of being there in the space and by the answer to the question – is this a place I want to be? Founded in the disciplines of art and science, Derck & Edson’s perspectives are interpretive and insightful. Our designs complement the linear contours of the streetscape or the pervasive majesty of nature’s own works. We create living micro-climates that establish a rapport between the environment and the people who exist in it. As landscape architects, we address all these issues and work to make your site a place where people want to live, study, grow, work, and play.
