Founder partners of De Molfetta & Strode Landscape Architects
De Molfetta & Strode is a landscape architecture studio that engages ecology, culture and human experience to transform the landscape. We design with nature as an integrated environment, where complexity in space and time are essential principles. Through research and practice we create landscapes that are resilient, sustainable and highly experiential. Each project is designed collaboratively, engaging clients, community and the other design disciplines. Founded in 2015 the studio is currently designing a wide range of landscapes including private gardens, waterfronts, neighborhoods and public parks.
