Landscape architecture

Spatial design as part of our DNA

With urban planner and Government Adviser Willem Witteveen as one of the founders and namesakes of Witteveen+Bos, spatial design has been in our DNA since day one. Our team of spatial designers consists of a growing number of around 35 landscape architects, urban planners and architects. We often work in multidisciplinary teams to create a healthy, climate-robust and biodiverse living environment for a wide variety of clients.

Within the field of landscape architecture, we do this at all levels. In both urban and rural areas or in assignments where urban and rural tasks converge. And it covers all phases: from vision formation and layout plans to implementation products.


Our approach to projects is characterised by participation by residents and users and collaboration with local partners. This ensures that local knowledge, specific needs and history all play a role in the approach. Our experts have extensive experience in thinking based on the identity of an area, applying creative forms of participation and working from the role of area director.

Water and soil central

When designing a healthy, climate-robust and biodiverse living environment, we consider water and soil to be the main guiding mechanisms on which to base the right design choices. We often opt for an integrated systems analysis as the starting point. This analysis provides insight into the interrelationships and how we can enhance this system to create a more sustainable living environment. The analysis also provides essential and valuable tools for working on related tasks and devising solutions that allow the space to be used for multiple purposes.

Witteveen+Bos combines its design strength with distinctive knowledge of landscapes and systems, preferably developing sustainable solutions for our clients and tomorrow’s society within an interactive process. The landscape architecture services we offer include:

  • Strategic spatial design: design studies, exploratory studies, area visions, planning studies wet/dry and related tasks in rural areas.
  • Landscaping and landscape design: landscape plans in green public spaces through plan development, layout and planting plans PD/FD.
  • Heritage and area identity: vision formation for conservation and development of heritage values and area identity.
