Part scholar of ornamental grasses, part master of all elements water, part sculptor of nature, Warren Simmonds uses an approach to Landscape Architecture that is deeply rooted in nature. The firm focuses on the idea of “sanctuary,” creating one-of-a-kind outdoor places that provide a respite from the stresses of life and nourish the spirit.
Founding San Anselmo, CA-based landscape architecture firm, Simmonds & Associates, Inc. in 1994 was a natural extension of Warren’s creative zeitgeist.
Prior to founding his own firm he tenured as both Project Manager and Landscape Architect for Eldon Beck Associates (San Rafael, CA), as Landscape Architect for Leffingwell Associates (Sausalito, CA), as Landscape Architect for Land Design International (Burleigh Heads, Australia) and as Landscape Architect for Al-Zoen Sekki Landscape Company (Tokyo, Japan.) Warren’s 30 plus years of experience is built on a unique project spectrum spread over three continents; residential garden design, commercial and retail design, hospital and school campus design, tropical and mountain resort projects and residential estates.
Warren received his degree in Landscape Architecture from The University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia and is currently licensed in the state of California
