Philosophy

VITA is a studio of planners, landscape architects and architects dedicated to respectfully merging the built environment with the natural setting through thoughtful, collaborative design. Inherent in our design process are knowledge and respect for local / regional cultures and customs, the environment and history. This understanding of the land and its inhabitants is the foundation of our work and provides cultural connections to place.

We have had the opportunity to complete commissions throughout the United States, Latin America, the Caribbean, Hawaii, the South Pacific, Australia, South East Asia, and India.We thrive on unique challenges that come from spectacular sites, evolving development trends and changing market conditions that affect the business of land development. Understanding the market and our client is paramount to achieving the goals of individual projects.

What distinguishes our firm from others of a similar nature is a combination of the following:

Business Discipline

Our community planning and design approach is based upon long-term enhancement of real estate assets through a combination of preservation and development.  We typically work closely with our clients, essentially becoming a part of their development team.  We utilize proven real estate development strategies, combined with innovative thinking, to create communities that not only respond to market and social trends but are environmentally and culturally responsible.  The financial success of many of the communities that we have designed is testimony to our sound approach.

Multi-Disciplinary Approach

We employ the professions of both Planning and Landscape Architecture to provide a comprehensive approach to community planning and landscape design.  We have found that the synergy between these disciplines, along with a close working relationship with architecture, can create projects with a competitive edge in the marketplace.

Large Firm/Small Firm

We have the broad experience and technical expertise of a large, international firm yet provide the enthusiasm, attention to detail and quick response usually associated with a boutique firm.  We limit our work load to allow the personal involvement of the firm's principals and tailor our services to the specific needs of the project.
