S+A Design Philosophy

Design Philosophy

Successful designs should engage the environment, have fluency among history, land forms and architecture, express rhythm with textures and interest among the seasons. We believe there is a close connection between balancing human needs and preserving what nature has given us to enjoy, and that beautiful surroundings nourish the human spirit. We are passionate about communities, whether they be rural or urban settings. We truly understand the social impact where clear landscape design helps connection between community and peoples, where they relate to and learn from the natural and built environment. We create multi-disciplinary teams, including the client, catering to each and every project to form think tanks that inspire ideas that are most appropriate to the site and users.

PROFESSIONAL AND CREATIVE

Solange is an extremely talented and thoughtful Landscape Architect, often being challenged by the difficult New Mexico terrain.

Solange and her team are incredibly professional and creative in each & every execution, which is why we consider them one of our valued preferred partners. They are a pleasure to work with, regardless of project scale or size.

passionate landscape architect

Solange is a passionate designer, and a consummate professional. In twenty years as an Architect, I have never met a landscape architects with such talent, passion, and professionalism. I recommend her wholeheartedly, and look forward to our next chance to work together.

A cohesive signature design

Solange and her Team brought incredible creativity and vision to our whole house re-landscaping project. Able to look beyond what had been put in place previously, they recycled plants and materials while creating a cohesive signature design. They were equally attentive during installation and worked well in the field solving problems, adjusting design elements, and evolving concepts. I had one disappointment at the end of the project: my time with this wonderful group of people was at an end.

gift to landscaping in santa fe

Solange is a gifted landscape architect. She is an excellent communicator and listener. She was very thorough in learning about my needs and took special care to be on site multiple times before she presented a design. She created a unique and outstanding solution to both the entrance to the house and the back patio "both difficult areas" and connected them through the use of creative and stunning hardscape. In addition, it was a pleasure to work with her. She is upbeat, fun, enthusiastic, smart, creative, patient and hard working. No matter what the problem she was there for me and readily solved whatever issue was at hand. I could not recommend her more highly. I think she is a gift to landscaping here in Santa Fe!

a pleasure to work with

Solange did an amazing job on the landscape design for our house! It perfectly reflects the home design, it's beautiful and easy to maintain. Our site has several level changes and Solange made amazing spaces that flow beautifully from one area to another. Every vantage point is a unique and gorgeous space. Solange and her entire crew are a pleasure to work with.

from blank slate to beautiful backyard

Our home was a new build and our backyard was a blank slate of dirt and weeds. Solange made it her top priority to understand our taste and how we hoped to utilize the space. She then created a design that exceeded anything I could imagine. We had Solange and her team oversee the installation as well. She was frequently onsite making sure every detail was right. I could not be happier with the work Serquis + Associates did.
