Based in Charlottesville, Virginia, Water Street Studio is a multidisciplinary environmental design firm that promotes the creativity and entrepreneurial aspirations of its clients, employees, and partners. We aim to enhance the aesthetic condition and ecological health of the built and natural environment through thoughtful and attentive landscape architecture and civil engineering; through leadership in sustainable/regenerative technologies; through strategic partnerships with like-minded professionals; and through continuing education and re-assessment of our means and methodologies.

Our design philosophy and project approach promote creative expression, pioneering thought, and active contribution among disciplines, understanding that the product of design is inherently a function of the process though which it is created. Taking our client’s fundamental needs and core values as a point of departure, we lend design and engineering expertise, business acumen, and an acute understanding of natural processes and ecological systems in an effort to create economically viable, environmentally responsible, and culturally engaging landscapes.
