Alex Lerner (BLArch.) //
Founder x Principal Designer
Alex Lerner, the founder and principal designer, holds a university degree in Landscape Architecture. He gained his design experience with a number of landscape architecture firms and hands-on landscaping experience with a major BC contractor. Although Alex has worked on a wide range of projects, including commercial, industrial, institutional, and recreational, he finds residential projects to be the most rewarding due to the personal relationships with clients and the unique nature of each project.
As many residential outdoor spaces are installed without a proper design, usability is often compromised. Lack of planning results in generic spaces that do not serve their owners. Alex founded the studio to create site-specific designs that reflect the client's lifestyle and character. The studio offers professional yet affordable design services with this goal in mind.
Design Approach //
We listen to the client's wishes, understand their needs, and come up with elegant solutions that are likely to exceed expectations.
We use advanced tools and techniques to create and communicate our designs. Our immersive methods of presentation include photorealistic 3D rendering, 3D fly-throughs, and VR presentation.
Great ideas are not enough - they need to work. We are experts in taking an idea from its conceptual stage to a high level of detailing. We ensure it works and will continue working for years to come.
Outdoor living spaces are highly personal. This is where people spend time with their family, relax after a long day, and create lasting memories. No two sites are alike and no two clients are alike. We believe that every project needs to reflect the lifestyle and character of its owners.
It takes two to create a personal living space - the client and the designer. To avoid creating generic and poorly suited spaces, we invite clients to be involved in the design process. We love to hear about their dreams and what inspires them, so we can incorporate their personality into the design.
