Lehman & Lehman is a landscape architectural – planning – placemaking firm committed to practicing with an emphasis on social, economic and purposeful design strategies. The company is dedicated to crafting sustainable landscapes, sites, and places that create positive change through cross-disciplinary collaborations. We embrace the process of landscape architecture as the synthesis of art, technology and social sciences to create community-centered solutions.
Lehman & Lehman approaches projects holistically, blending marketplace needs and construction realities with the possibilities presented by the site and its community. In public and private arenas, we work collaboratively with engineers, architects and other disciplines to balance environmental, social and economic factors, to meet client's objectives most effectively, while ensuring sustainable solutions.
It is often hard to convey what makes a place memorable, successful or special, but to paraphrase an old adage, “You know it when you see it.” Placemaking has been defined as the deliberate reshaping of the built environment to facilitate social interaction and improve quality of life resulting in economic benefits and a stronger community. Lehman & Lehman is building on the various definitions of placemaking, reshaping dull, ordinary spaces into exciting, vibrant places.
Lehman & Lehman values sustainable practices and projects, green building practices, sustainable landscape architecture design, and sustainable development. We believe that our attention to the environmental and economic details in a project helps to improve the quality of life for those who will experience the livability of the project. Our objective is to strategically apply the best practices that will result in better environmental quality, conservation of energy and resources, educate our clients and the community, and save money doing so.
