Coen + Partners Landscape Architects, Gardenista

Coen + Partners is a nationally renowned landscape architecture practice based in Minneapolis.

Through a process of collaboration, experimentation and questioning, Coen + Partners work embraces the complexities of each site with quiet clarity and ecological integrity.

Our landscapes are influenced by people and place. We collaborate extensively with top and emerging global design talent to create site designs integrating programmatic, architectural, and ecological goals with innovation and beauty. We offer a comprehensive suite of services including master planning, site design, programming, and project administration for urban, green roof, rural and multi-scaled residential, institutional, and commercial projects. In each area of emphasis, we expose and enhance in-situ systems while highlighting the architectural concept through site-specific materials, deferential textures, and supportive plant palettes. 

Our work reflects an understanding of site, visual beauty, environmental advocacy and fiscal responsibility unmatched in the landscape architecture community. We seek not to recreate nature in our work, but rather to redefine natural frameworks and transform them into innovative solutions for comprehensively designed environments. 

The success of our practice is due to our design vision and dedication to our clients.

The Streeter residence is located in a suburban development of mid- to late-20th century homes in Deephaven, Minnesota. The structure, sited towards the rear of a large sloping and heavily wooded lot, gestures outwards to the existing wetlands, an existing birch grove, and a stand of mature oak and cottonwood trees.

The Emerson Residence interprets modern design through a Minnesota vernacular. Coen + Partners created a landscape for this David Salmela designed house that captures the aesthetic of a “retreat” by carefully integrating the residence into the existing lakeside landscape of towering white pines.

The design of the outdoor areas responds to the client’s interest in accommodating both large social functions and small, family gatherings. Coen+Partners’ response to the dramatic, curving facades of the buildings is a simple, flexible layout that consists of gardens, terraces and a raised-edge swimming pool and spa.
