SQLA Inc. (Square Los Angeles Inc.), is the premiere Los Angeles landscape design, architectural landscape design, garden design and urban design firm. We are dedicated to the art and craft of creating engaging and wondrous landscape designer environments with a lasting presence for your living, work and play.
SQLA Inc. was established through the expert guidance of the master licensed landscape architect, Samuel K. Kim in 1996. We provide a full range of landscape architectural design services including site planning, urban design, site-specific landscape design, and more. We handle all the construction observation, administration, and management tasks throughout the complete design/build to ensure our landscape designs are naturally beautiful and bring a true sense of happiness and joy to those who enjoy it. Under Samuel’s leadership, our studio has employed inventive, creative, and intricately beautiful design solutions to all of our projects. We have worked on a wide range of landscape design, at scales from intimate residential gardens and meticulously crafted personal sculptural works, to large multi-family residential communities, universities, and large commercial centers.
Whether real, abstracted or virtual, we believe with a passion that a natural environmental landscape design is essential for a healthy, drought tolerant landscape design environment. That’s is why we design our richly layered landscape designs art using modern California native garden design techniques. We infuse our landscape designs are with natural, cultural and healing elements that foster local and sustainability and enrich the spirit and soul. As the top landscape designers in Los Angeles, our modern landscape architects have built on years of practice and experience in both urban landscape design and residential landscape design.
We approach our landscape designs as the art and craft of sculpting space through the processing of raw materials, meticulously crafted into spectacular works of art. Whether in a smaller communal gathering space, a private outdoor room or a garden sanctuary, we use the raw materials of nature—plants, water, rock, gravel and wood—to define and create lush landscape designs that will influence your emotions, thoughts and realities, and enrich your life. Through creative explorations in landscape design, we seek hands-on knowledge of the physical and psychological qualities of the raw materials we use throughout the process of our landscape design and construction of our sculptural works. Through these studies, we have gained not only profound material intimacy, but also the technical skills to understand how these raw natural elements and man-made materials may be layered, mixed, abstracted, assembled, or fabricated to produce beautiful works of art and landscape design that are just as wondrous to behold as they are to walk through and experience. This strong understanding of our materials, as well as our expert landscape design know-how gives us the edge that not only forms the backbone for our landscape design, building and construction services, but also is what makes SQLA the best landscape designers in Los Angeles.
We design with life, creating spaces where life happens. Whether our landscape designs invite joyful celebration, contemplation, immersion, or play, we embrace the process of our architectural landscape design to create breathtaking wonders that will capture your heart and soul.
