SMARTLAND is a multi-disciplinary landscape design office with an international focus. We develop innovative and integrated spatial solutions for sustainable living environments, on various scales. With our professional roots in the Dutch Rhine River Delta we have gained broad experience in handling spatial quests in densely populated areas, which we project in urban deltas around the world.
From this perspective we focus on the urgent challenges the planet is facing at this moment. We develop innovative, integrated spatial solutions for projects in which landscape, urban planning, water management, ecology, architecture and product design come together. We solve problems that are universal and that go beyond borders with design solutions that are unique and tailor made.
Natural systems form the starting point in our search for solutions. We believe that knowledge and specific experience of the landscape inevitably leads to appreciation as well as and concern for the environment. We make landscape understandable, readable and liveable.
We have broad experience in various design scales from public space design to large scale landscape planning. Within this range we focus on the following themes:
URBAN & RURAL AREAS
