Welcome to Harris Bugg Studio

We are a values-driven, award-winning landscape design practice with projects encompassing residential, public, historic, botanic, and commercial spaces, which are often located in protected or sensitive settings.

Formed in 2017, we have demonstrated our ability to win and deliver work at the highest level, and have been called “pioneering design talents of their generation” by the Royal Horticultural Society.

Our practice is recognised for working carefully to embrace and respect the singular spirit of place. Our aim is to connect people and nature, fulfilling a profound and innate need in all of us, and to do so responsibly with careful, considered use of materials and plants.

With studios in London and Exeter, we are currently working on projects located across the UK and Europe, providing a seamless service from design to completion.
