Matthew Allan (Director) set up his design studio in 2010. His initial passion began working in community gardens encouraging local people to create green spaces to grow food, flowers and develop friendships. His interest in sustainable development the environment and the impact on our health continue to drive him to design gardens and landscapes for individuals and communities.
He qualified as a Landscape Architect in 2005 and subsequently completing a Masters in Construction Project Management. Having worked in the landscape design industry for over 20 years he has had the opportunity to design and construct projects in both private and commercial settings. His portfolio includes private and commercial gardens, roof terraces, public spaces, show gardens, NHS trust garden, and housing development projects.
As well as domestic projects we also provide design services for landscape professionals, undertake project management, construction and planting.
Although a small team apt studios has a wealth of experience and expertise. There is a dedicated team of garden designers, landscape architecture professionals, horticulturalist and landscapers.
Often garden design is seen as an afterthought, following the interior design of our homes. However, Matthew believes the garden is an opportunity to create an additional room and therefore is an essential element of our living space.
