Studioverde is a collaborative of landscape architects and site sustainability professionals with comprehensive design expertise in green infrastructure and Low Impact Development (LID). We led the field in ecology-based design, starting in the early 1990’s and, based on our groundbreaking work, were featured in Landscape Architecture Magazine (August 2015) “Return of the Swamp” which focused on our successful designs of wetland systems.
Studioverde’s notable projects include the sustainable restoration and enhancements of the Kittery Maine Travel Plaza and the campus for the Mount Desert headquarters for the Maine Coast Heritage Trust – which include some of the first successful green infrastructure systems in Maine. Other green infrastructure projects include the revitalized front entrance to the Margaret Chase Smith Federal Building in Bangor, Maine, and a Customs and Border Patrol facility in Easton, Maine.
Studioverde’s team are active public speakers to non-profit, community and professional organizations and contribute written pieces to promote sustainable sites and green infrastructure education. Lisa Cowan is an Officer for ASLA’s Sustainable Design and Development Professional Practice Network and works on a national basis to promote green infrastructure technologies to design professionals.
