Meet Landscape Architecture Bureau [LAB]


Landscape Architecture Bureau [LAB] creates memorable landscapes and urban designs that are practical, sustainable and of lasting beauty. To the extent that LAB has a specialty, it is in landscape architecture in urbanized contexts; we are expert in solving design problems for people in the public realm. The firm has gained a reputation for exploring thoroughly the possibilities of each project no matter its size, scope, or resources, resulting in spaces that satisfy their users and engage the senses.

LAB’s work fuses art, stewardship and client service, crafting designs that are fresh, pragmatic and environmentally responsible. We infuse stewardship of both natural and social systems into every aspect of our work, understanding that a project will not be a success unless it also contributes to the public’s physical and social well-being.

From the beginning of each project, LAB works to identify a guiding concept—a strong, clear idea. We carry this idea through every stage of the project, from early design thoughts to contract documents to construction administration, advocating for the ultimate integrity and intention of the project as a whole. Our attention to detail while preparing construction drawings allows the work to be priced fairly and built solidly.

Over the past 30 years, LAB has designed a broad range of award-winning projects throughout the Washington, DC area including: institutional facilities, parks, urban civic spaces, commercial and retail spaces, hospitality spaces, transportation infrastructure, green infrastructure, multifamily and single family residential landscapes.
