We are happy to announce Courtney Goode, Principal, Goode Landscape Studio (GLS), will be leading the landscape design team as we embark on our journey to construct Barnard Place Park.
We are especially impressed by their industry experience, creative vision and enthusiasm for our project to honor the history of our neighborhood. GLS clearly has a passion for the work they do. We look forward to rolling up our sleeves together.
Goode Landscape Studio is a Boston-based landscape architecture studio with over ten years of experience in design and landscape architecture. "We are driven by a deep curiosity about local cultures and natural systems that shape the places where we work. We are socially conscious and ecologically minded and begin by listening to the land, to our clients, and to our communities. We are experimental and inquisitive, yet trust in proven methods and rely on expert knowledge. Our work seeks to balance pragmatism with poetry and to weave more sustainable ties between communities and the natural environment." - Courtney Goode
