Jeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape Architecture © 2014
ASSOCIATE / DESIGNER
Danielle began studying Interior Design at San Francisco State University but felt like she needed a life change, so she packed her suitcase and moved to New Zealand where she attended Massey University, receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies with an emphasis in Sustainable Development.
Danielle moved back to the central coast in 2006 where she worked for her parents, a general contractor and interior designer. Teaming up on a personal project Danielle met Jeffrey during a landscape remodel. She became inspired by his unique plant palate and vision of the space and felt that his design philosophy had an ideal synergy of architectural detail and environmental awareness. A perfect fit with her personal design aesthetic.
Danielle now works in all areas of the design process from the development of schematic designs to construction documents. She brings with her an enthusiasm for native plants, a focus on sustainable design practices, and a desire to create functional outdoor spaces that link the clients needs back to the surrounding landscape and to the architecture.
