ABOUT

Braid.Work, LLC
is a design-driven landscape architecture collective based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Northern California, and Boulder, Colorado

As a collaborative landscape architecture collective, we believe that Landscape Architecture influences positive change in our communities and promotes
restorative processes for our native habitats.

We specialize in habitat restoration, large-scale housing projects, public parks, cityscapes and high-end residential clientele. We work to integrate natural cycles and systems across all scales to ensure social and environmental harmony.

With the basis of our company being in permaculture and ecological restoration, we combine a high-end design sense with ecologically friendly practices. We aim to create award winning and restorative spaces that connect people to their immediate environment, preserve historic significance and create dynamic and adaptive landscapes of the future.

We are committed to working with clients who promote positive social and environmental impact. Braid.Work drives positive change for companies, communities and our environment.

We work with clients to ensure that design concept remains intact through the process of building public urban landscapes, we combine new technologies with tried and true construction techniques. We aim to create landscapes of lasting significance, reconnecting neighborhood infrastructure and habitats for generations to come.

Our staff is experienced in landscape architecture, graphic design, fine art, urban design, and planning, and we integrate these skillsets to practice design as
interpreters and synthetic thinkers. We lead and work with teams of engineers and architects on complex projects, from streetscapes to large river restoration projects, translating technical expertise into legible and engaging public space. We also believe in working with communities and stakeholders to translate complex visions into realizable actions.
