We are a global landscape architecture and urban design practice that transforms environments through contextual design and commitment to craft.

Discovering the essence of place

We find inspiration in the immediate and regional context of our projects, and honor the people, plants, and animals who have and will use them.

Our Ethos

We are risk-takers and we actively pursue designs that elevate accepted norms. Through extensive research and study, we innovate in the present while standing on the solid ground of history, context, and the most meaningful work of the past. We believe humans feel harmonious design in their soul and that everyone should have access to beautifully designed spaces.

“From shaping our parks and buildings to transforming the creative infrastructure and the ways we tell our stories, Coen+Partners demonstrates the power of design in everyday life.”

Lake Marion

For this private residence, we used geometric shapes to celebrate the existing ecosystem through contrast. With long lines and vantage points that add sense and story to an amorphous environment, the added pathways are honest about human intervention while amplifying the magic of the terrain.

Urban Wadi

Carved out of the earth and celebrating local materials and culture, this radical intervention creates a place for people to gather in a new type of urban garden. Designed as an abstraction of natural wadis, this hub connects users with their community, their history, and with the terrain.

Line Landscape Panels

The timeless, minimalist form of the Line landscape panels, designed by Shane Coen and Coen+Partners, defines the boundaries of the landscape. Line panels delineate space, provide enclosure, and give landscape architects a vocabulary to express their unique site designs and turn functional spatial markers into crafted and integrated features.

Commitment to Equity

We are committed to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in all facets of our work and lives. To start, we have compiled a list of resources to encourage listening, growth, and self-reflection.
