Robin Key Landscape Architecture (RKLA) is a landscape architecture firm based in New York City. In practice since 1987, the firm - which is certified as a Woman-owned Business Enterprise in New York City - has worked on a diverse range of projects including institutional landscapes, multifamily properties, country residential properties and city townhouse, terrace and rooftop gardens. With each design, the firm strives to create spatial richness through the expression of clean, solid lines and inspiring views.
RKLA’s talented design team provides a high level of attention to clients with services from initial consultations, design development and master planning, to construction documents, contractor selection and construction administration. In the realization of a project, RKLA often collaborates with a team of architects, engineers, skilled trades-people and institutional staff. The firm respects each client’s unique needs and varied design aesthetic. It is this valued collaborative process - between client, designer and consultant - that is often carried over from project to project as RKLA receives many of its commissions from clients and architects that it has previously worked with.
Aware of the role landscape architecture serves within the community and the larger environment, RKLA’s work emphasizes sustainability and maintainable designs. The firm’s design team, all of whom have a strong background in the sciences, draws from an extensive knowledge of native plant material and sustainable design methods. The firm values design solutions that both respect and enhance the social, architectural and natural site conditions. RKLA holds LEED accreditation.
