Ecocentrix was founded on the fundamental premise that - the quality of the experience and function of landscapes is achieved by understanding inherently "what is" and "what is wanting", and that quality of life is a reflection of the quality of the landscape. More Less
It has remained our charge to maintain a keen understanding of our client's individual and collective interests and lead each project with an evolved vision for how these may manifest within.
The firm's work is rooted in investigations of residential estate and resort style living. Our clients are characterized by their culturally rich backgrounds and sophisticated design tastes, ranging from traditional to contemporary, and whose personal lifestyles and histories include a diverse range of travel and worldly explorations. This has availed us the opportunity for continued studies in the area of luxury living, and to enjoy work internationally.
Whether residential resort or resort hotel, our approach to site planning and amenity design bears a similar thread. We artfully interact with nature by thoughtfully manipulating natural and constructed form, recognizing that the art of landscape is in the interaction of human and non-human nature. It is in this way that we may accentuate and amplify space.
Our body of work exemplifies great stylistic range and restraint produced with consistently high quality. Our projects are immediately mood altering, celebrating the sensual and tactile temperament that is the fabric of landscape.
Our design creates the ground for celebrating the cycles of all life, and is the foundation of regional identities enveloping cultural distinctions. It reinforces what is powerful and enhances what is weak. Ecocentrix endeavors to "Enrich Life Through Design".
