Welcome, and thank you for taking time to visit K Landscape Architecture & Garden Design Studio website. 

Landscape design is not only a job I enjoy, it’s first and foremost my passion.

Since I remember, art was always a major part of my life. I was a creative kid with curious scientific and engineering brain that loved nature and everything about it. So, choosing a career as a landscape architect was a result of organic growth of my interest in the aesthetics and relations between art, nature, human and its environment. 

 

As a student I delved into world of landscape architecture and loved every bit of it. Gaining knowledge and understating the impact of all the aspects of how our natural environment have on our everyday life, I couldn’t be more passionate and impatient to start ‘changing the world’. I started designing gardens for family and friends and spent every summer volunteering and working for garden design and landscaping companies. 

 

But there was something more than just gardens that made me love what I do. I long for change that makes the place where we live, better and greener. I believe that change needs to influence in much bigger scale, making our towns and cities break the picture of concrete jungles. Therefore, I participated in many student programs and projects promoting public realm regeneration. In 2008 I was honoured with winning the Best School Garden Design in Lublin District - a voluntary project for Primary School's in Ozarow Village, inspired by novel - "Adventures of Robinson Crusoe''. It was great fun, but an even greater pleasure seeing all the kids happy and excited about their new place that they would get to enjoy.  

Just before attaining my master’s degree I started working for a spatial planning company, where I put my knowledge into practise as a specialist for natural environment and sustainable development.   

After graduating from University, I decided to take my career to the next level, knowing there is no better place to explore the subject more, due to its history and beauty, I knew I had to come to the UK. 

After 10 years of practising in London, which was a great journey that has equipped me with loads of new experience and knowledge, I decided to challenge myself once more and here I am with - K Studio. 

As a company we will continue to bring great landscape design that works for and with people and the environment.
