CONTEXT, LLC is an award-winning land planning and landscape architecture firm founded on a philosophy embodied in its name. Each site, project, client conveys a unique set of influences which characterize the essence of a design challenge. From a keen sensitivity to these influences come solutions which create the spirit of place—a place that is one with its context.
Our firm is built on enthusiasm for exceptional planning and design, and the technical knowledge to create a realistic vision. We are attentive listeners, carefully synthesizing the program and personality of our clients. Our care and commitment during the planning process will be evident throughout the life of each place we help create or enhance.
Our practice is defined by four primary characteristics:
Principal Involvement: As a small firm, the principals and owners of the company are actively involved in each project. At CONTEXT, a principal is not only responsible for the delivery of each project but also integral to its development, from beginning to end. Hence, we can ensure the highest degree of professional commitment.
Real Participation: Exceptional design is an evolution, not a product, and true collaboration between the client and the design team is essential throughout the process. We believe in the power of an integrated team effort to inspire creative, thoughtful and viable design solutions.
Responsiveness: We are truly dedicated to providing outstanding client service and building long-lasting professional relationships. CONTEXT responds efficiently and appropriately to our clients' needs because we base our achievements on the success of our clients and their ventures.
Responsibility: As landscape architects we strive to improve and sustain quality of life by balancing the needs and desires of people with the protection and enhancement of the ecosystems in which we live. As business people and active members of our own communities we endeavor to serve as leaders and role models for respect, fairness, honesty and optimism.
