The design studio is located in Waterbeach, Cambridge

 

Profile

The practice was set up in 1987 by Jamie Buchanan DipLA, CMLI and is based outside Cambridge. Its core skills are landscape planning, design and implementation.

JBLA has a particular experience in masterplanning and developing innovative design concepts for difficult and demanding sites within and beyond the city. The practice has the experience and resources to work on the design and implementation of landscape proposals for a wide spectrum of projects. This expertise ranges from the small domestic garden to large areas of land around a number of important European archaeological sites in Italy and Albania.

Using a simple palette of materials and planting, the practice has created new and revitalised landscapes that respond not only to the needs and wishes of the client but also draw on the existing strengths of the site and support the practical aspects of its long term establishment and management.
