Who We Are

Epstein Design Studio was founded with the primary focus of creating landscapes that transform emotions and evoke an atmosphere of caring, creating unique and unforgettable sensory experiences in the garden. Our work is informed by natural ecology and human psychology, creating a unifying relationship between landscape and architecture.

What We Do

Our approach is centered on transforming design principles through innovative engineering and ecology, and grounded in community needs and aspirations. We use evidence-based design and a collaborative process to craft healing spaces that function on many levels. .Always concerned with budgets and efficiency, we stay engaged, listen carefully, and respond promptly.

Why We Do It

Continuously researching design ideas, ecological processes, and human responses to the environment, we enjoy the collaborative process that brings life to ideas, and the ideas to life.

With your input and our experience, we will create beautiful places.
