About

We are a network of landscape architecture studios dedicated to the research and practice of thriving outdoor spaces. We offer a range of services tailored to the specific needs of each project.

Who We Are

For over 30 years, LJ-Group has been dedicated to designing modern landscapes for a variety of clients from all over the world. From the first office in Rio de Janeiro, the network has now expanded to well-established branches in Brazil, Vietnam and Portugal.

Our landscape solutions are diverse in scale and type, but always integrate users’ needs with the surrounding facilities and natural environment.

How We Work

LJ-Group combines extensive knowledge of nature and landscapes with contemporary ideas about people and culture. We always consider the human dimensions in a space, be they cultural, historical, or physical. Natural shapes, materials, and designs are thereby a continuous source of inspiration.

Design Strategy

We offer our clients a combination of thorough research, creative thinking and tight project management in every step of the process: from conceptual design to construction planning and implementation.

Depending on the project, we select specialized team members and partners. Their varying backgrounds and skill sets offer fresh perspectives and solutions.

Meet Our Team

Our international, multidisciplinary team ranges from landscape architects to biologists, agronomic engineers and designers. All of them young, eager and creative people with a shared purpose: to challenge and expand the boundaries of landscape architecture.
