About
Us.

We are Landscape Architects, Urban Designers and Master Planners with a passion for design. We create meaningful spatial experiences that connect people to the places they live, work and play. We connect the systems that impact our everyday well-being: socially, culturally, economically, and sustainably. We believe we have a responsibility to design with innovation, creativity, and technical excellence.

We recognize that every design has the power to transform. We share the passion and rigour that allows us to create designs that respond to its particular place and enhances a site, neighborhood or community while remaining a natural partner with the environment.  We constantly search for solutions which respond to the circumstances of each project. This emphasis acknowledges that our work is generated by the needs of the user.

We are millennials, baby boomers, writers, musicians, animal lovers, athletes, travelers, environmentalists, parents, artists...we are STUDIO tla.




DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

At STUDIO tla we recognize and value the diversity of the communities in which we live and work. We commit to implementing, and maintaining best practices and strategies to enhance equality, diversity and inclusion. We make this commitment at all stages of the employment life cycle: recruitment, retention and advancement. Our policies require that we show dignity and respect for one another, encourage mutual recognition of interests, rights and obligations, facilitate maximum recognition of rights, wherever possible help parties to understand the scope of their rights and obligations, address stigma and power imbalances and help to give marginalized individuals and groups a voice, encourage cooperation and shared responsibility for finding agreeable solutions that maximize enjoyment of rights, and a commitment on our part to make sincere efforts to achieve these goals when addressing competing human rights scenarios.


The Office Policy Manual of STUDIO tla, signed by every member of the team, clearly sets out policies against discrimination & harassment (Including Sexual Harassment), an Integrated Accessibility Standards Policy and a Workplace Violence Policy, amongst others. A purpose of this Manual is to set out STUDIO tla’s commitment to, and strategy for, establishing and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workplace, particularly for those who may have been historically excluded from, and under-represented in, the field of landscape architecture. Those historically excluded, and under-represented include but are not limited to individuals who are identified as: Indigenous peoples; people with disabilities; individuals from racialized groups; people of diverse faiths and creeds; people with diverse gender identities or expressions and women.




Acknowledgement of Treaty 13 & the Williams Treaty


STUDIO tla recognizes that as landscape architects we have a responsibility for the stewardship of both natural environments and lived-in communities to enhance the social, economic, psychological, cultural and physical attributes of the land for now and in the future.


We recognize and acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Williams Treaty signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa peoples. We also recognize and acknowledge the profound spiritual connection of the Aboriginal people to the land and how deeply it is steeped in their culture.


We support the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work and create on these lands and we thank the past, present and future caretakers of this land for their stewardship
