The manner in which we inhabit the land and the marks upon it which result are the raw materials of landscape architecture. Built by Robert Camlin to a design by Dominic Roberts, Camlin Lonsdale's studio resides in what is referred to as Mwynder Maldwyn or the 'gentleness of Montgomeryshire'. The building, constructed with locally sourced Douglas fir, Welsh oak and slate, provides a convivial home for the family of seven landscape architects who work here.
Conversation, lively debate and the absence of an office hierarchy ensure that family members draw inspiration from one another as well as their surroundings. On this morning, Robert, Marie and Irina assume the pose - and ponder new marks of substance and meaning.
