Gregg Bleam Landscape Architect plc was founded in 1990 out of a desire to explore the relationship between modern architecture and landscape. Commissions range from private residences and gardens to public campuses and master plans. Projects emphasize the sustainable use of indigenous materials that enhance the built form they surround. Projects also explore the seasonal and ephemeral qualities of plants as they relate to indoor and outdoor spaces. Each project is an opportunity to explore the relationship of space, material and light within the site’s larger sense of place.
Gregg Bleam, the firm’s principal, has over thirty years of experience in the field of landscape architecture. A graduate of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, he was an Associate in the Office of Dan Kiley in Charlotte, Vermont. He moved to Charlottesville, Virginia in 1987 as a member of the School of Architecture at the University of Virginia, teaching Graduate and Undergraduate Landscape Architecture and Architecture courses for ten years.
