behind the scenes...
Behind this creative office is landscape architect Yves Dehondt. A young thirtier passionate by design and a heart for nature.
An excensive research and lectoring past at the university college of VIVES, brought a profound knowledge on plant scemes, naturalistic gardens and sustainable green infrastructure (as green roofs, urban drainage systems, ...). In the past, he did consultancy for green policy of several cities in Flanders where he drew the roadmap for a long term vision of the urban green develepment. As a result, every design project is reflected in a wider context.
As certified European Tree Technician and Zero-pesticide-consultant, every project is unconsiously approached for low-maintenance and with respect for the sensitivity of the excisting landscape.
The red line through his ambition will always be to design green spots with an higher aim of bold designing, material use and plant composition. He wants to move away from traditional landscaping basing on purely esthetical and functional purposes to a higher purpose of imbedding gardens and public spaces as a solution for problems of climate change or ecological impoverishment. Sustainable design ideas should not only be implemented on large scale projects, but can make a difference on small green stepping stones as gardens, multi-family real-estate and corporate outdoor spaces.
