About us

Our Perception

Humphreys and Partners Landscape Architecture was established in 2009 with a determination to push creative boundaries in landscape architecture. We value the constraints we face in our work because therein always lies a novel opportunity. With this optimism, we thrive in addressing any challenge because, at HPLA, adversity always evolves into creative and thoughtful design solutions.

At the end of the day, we love what we do and value our relationships with those whom we have the privilege to work with. This passion bleeds into every aspect of our work, providing our team and clients with excitement over the unique possibilities that each project brings. Our success comes from reception to new ideas that are born in a collective imagination of interdisciplinary relationships. This attitude of open-mindedness allows us to deliver a body of work that intrigues our audience and fulfills our clients desires.

Our Process

At HPLA, there exists no concrete blueprint for design. Our work strives to deliver new and creative concepts that are unique to the grander scheme of each project. Novelty with practicality is our credo. We aim to provide groundbreaking designs married with pragmatism. In each project a myriad of variables are intimately considered in order to provide a unique, functional, and sustainable design that exceeds the wishes of both client and user alike.

We are proficient in managing high-level, multi-faceted projects in a timely and exceptional fashion. Working in full collaboration with our clients and multidisciplinary consultants, we can effectively determine and execute a projects vision from beginning to end. HPLA recognizes every client has a personal directive in their approach to a project, and a successful beginning can only stem from the value we place in our relationships with our clients & teammates.

Our People

Landscape architecture is often a fast-paced and spontaneous process that demands an open, unbridled mind to excel in. To facilitate this, the HPLA studio harbors an enjoyable, relaxed, and stimulating work environment. Our associates are ardently encouraged to explore their creativity, collaborate openly, and experiment freely. Every day we challenge and support one another to explore perspectives that transcend the ordinary.

The HPLA team possesses backgrounds in many facets of landscape architecture, architecture, urban planning, and graphic design. With this broad design knowledge, we flourish in projects of varying scales, scopes, and contexts. Design does not happen in a vacuum, and therefore at HPLA every voice contributes to realizing a projects true potential. It is only through an open forum that our individual ideas are galvanized into visionary concepts.
