Welcome to our Atlanta studio
The minute you think you know Atlanta, you’ve already taken your eye off the ball. Our studio moves as fast as our city does business. We are as international as our city. We are as rooted to pride of place as our city’s neighborhoods. And we are driven by big ideas.
In collaborations with local partners and communities, our ideas are reimagining Metro Atlanta as a healthier, more accessible, more beloved city. Our holistic approach to the design of our very own building set a new bar for LEED rating in the city—and the world—and laid the groundwork for Perkins&Will’s Living Design philosophy.
Published in the latest issue of Society of College and University Planning (SCUP)’s Higher Education Journal, our client Cathy Pinskey, Capital Program Director in Facilities at GMU, and Stephanie Wolfgang, Senior Landscape Architect, recount the development of the Enslaved Children of George Mason Project, in a co-authored articled titled, Telling the Untold Stories.
The Atlanta Studio is thrilled to share the promotion of its new additions to the leadership group. Our firm’s Leadership Program recognizes individuals who have an outstanding positive impact on our firm, our teams, and our clients through innovation, culture-building, and design excellence. The promotion of these team members reinforces our studio’s commitment to celebrating those who demonstrate exceptional leadership values and principles.
Our Branded Environments team celebrates its 10th anniversary in the Atlanta studio. Established in 2010 by award-winning designer, Keith Curtis, this specialty team of multi-disciplinary designers focuses on customized strategies and experiences through physical, virtual, and digital environments, creating branded design solutions for clients that reflect their organizations’ unique cultures and ambitions.
As a response to clients’ pandemic-era outdoor-workspace needs, our Landscape Architecture experts developed Working LandScapes, a toolkit with creative outdoor work solutions that address a variety of considerations, scales, and price points. Post-pandemic, these vignettes will respond to the longer-term bottom-line and public-health benefits to outdoor work, notably enhanced well-being.
