People

Reed is a passionate designer intent on creating landscapes that reflect the nuances of human aesthetics and embody the natural beauty of their region. A philosopher at heart, Reed loves to explore contrasts of form and texture in his designs, and believes in a “less is more” approach to landscape, emphasizing the inherent beauty of each project’s land, materials, and craftsmanship. In his spare time, he enjoys investigating the traditions of cultures through a culinary lense, examining regions by studying their endemic cuisines and exploring the cooking methods and agricultural systems that support them.
