Counts Studio is an award-winning creative office comprised of landscape architects and urban designers committed to the design of world-class public spaces. We approach landscape design and planning as a science-based fine art capable of enhancing the quality of people’s lives and the health of our natural environment. With offices in New York and Chicago, our firm was founded on the belief that outdoor spaces need to be more reflective of the diversity, vitality, and complexities of contemporary culture. We work locally, nationally and abroad on projects ranging from gardens, memorials, plazas, and rooftops to large urban parks, waterfronts, and master plans. Our unique model-based design process ensures that each project becomes a one-of-a-kind outdoor place through the goals and aspirations of our clients and their communities.
