With 20 years of practice Matt Durham acts as our managing principal, overseeing the work flow and financial status of our studios. His experience includes a broad range of domestic and international work, master planned communities, parks and recreation, open space resource planning, urban mixed-use, campus, commercial, retail and entitlement documentation. Matt approaches each project with a focus on building relationships for an effective and efficient process. He is driven to set our clients’ expectations at a high level of design, and to achieve those goals to everyone’s satisfaction. His technical expertise as a landscape architect balances high quality service with excellent built work. Matt currently leads our work in the Orchard Hills community of Irvine where he has been involved from initial master planning through the design of individual home sites. He has also recently completed retrofitting the Pacific Center landscape in Torrance to open views from all stories of the office building, provide much-needed outdoor gathering space, and increase the functional and aesthetic value of the landscape. Matt stays active in his community by coaching little league, and serves on the Professional Advisory Board for Cal Poly San Luis Obispo’s landscape architecture department.
