We Listen and Hear You

Confluence brings landscape architecture, planning and urban design together as a creative but practical means of merging our client’s needs with the environment.  A philosophy characterizing our body of work is to make every project unique through the art of ‘place-making’.  As stewards of the land and the built environment, we aspire to create a human connection with each project and its surrounding context while respecting nature.

We Think Different:Our design + planning process is focused on collaboration and interaction with our clients, consultants and the community in which we work

Our mission is to evolve our client’s vision into unique realization by exceeding expectations, bringing together people and ideas to create meaningful, memorable places.
