Sensomoto is a landscape architecture studio working at the intersection of design, ecology and urbanism. Our goal is to connect people with their landscapes and each other. Our approach is sensitive and sensible to the environmental, participatory, functional, artistic and playful potentials of every project.
We work with local governments, public institutions and associations on missions of project management, education, advocacy and research. Our interventions are diverse : from large scale perspectives to questions of public space and individual gardens. We specialize in engaging spaces in social and intergenerational interactions including urban agriculture, community gardens, therapeutic gardens and playgrounds. Sensomoto has the technical abilities to generate projects from design through construction. Our missions also incorporate our commitment to spontaneous and participatory processes.
Sensomoto has been driven by two principal landscape architects since 2010 : Sylvain Delboy and Sarah Kassler. We share a strong common vision that is based in our complementary professional experiences and dual culture. Our studio benefits from an active network of freelance collaborators.
