Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
YIHE Landscape Architecture is founded in 2019 based in Bay Area California and Wuhan, China. Our Shanghai Office joined in 2021.
We are committed to create public/private spaces to promote social harmony, economic vitality and ecological environment through artful design.
Sustainable thinking is the foundation of our design. We identify, protect and reuse site resources to enhance the design. Bring down the energy consumption and minimize the damage to the environment. We understand sometimes project has complex issues need other professionals to get involved. We bring extensive experience to lead and collaborate with multiple consultants like architects, water environment engineers, structural engineers, artists to complete the project.
The scale of the site, the aesthetics of space, the use of people and the attributes of eco-friendly is what we like to study. We are committed to seeking a balance, with a united design language to integrate the needs of all aspects of the project. We think communication is the key to explore the potential and the site spirit of the project itself with client through design process.
The good details must be relatively easy to achieve with sustainable detailing thinking while stand the test of time aesthetic. On-site cooperation and good communication is the key to the implementation stage of the project. Our team in Bay Area and China will continue to provide observation and administration in construction phase of the effort to bring the best results for the project.
Landscape is a medium to connect people to the environment, history, culture, and even memories of the resonance. It also can increase and promote the value to the site and its surrounding environment. We believe authentic should be the core of the design without unnecessary piling and symbols.
