With deep roots planted in the community—coming up on 50 years since Camp & Camp was established—we felt a re-introduction to our work (and growth) was in order.
My father William Camp, A.I.A. and I formed Camp & Camp out of a shared love for integrated design and quality environments through an innovative marriage of architecture and landscape design. We’ve been fortunate to be involved in the planning and design of thousands of large-scale communities, complexes, urban environments, and custom residential gardens in the S.F. Bay Area and throughout the United States and Asia.
Alongside our connected passion for landscape design, I am proud to have had 25 years in public service as a Planning and Design Review Commissioner for the Cities of Lafayette, Walnut Creek, and Martinez. This perspective enables a deep understanding of the complexity in navigating General Plans, zoning ordinances and various requirements to obtain entitlements. Our careful guardianship of balancing design goals, environmental challenges, budgets and construction constraints, is never lost throughout the process.
As times and as trends change, our firm has attracted some of the most talented landscape planners, architects and designers in the industry. Together we have adapted and responded with creative, pragmatic, and humane solutions. Sustainability—a hallmark of our approach to environmental stewardship—is combined with creative aesthetics to create truly memorable spaces.
To me, The Summit embodies the peak, the top most level attainable in one’s journey or work, which is always our guiding principle at Camp and Camp. In this first issue of The Summit, I hope you’ll enjoy some of the projects, places and people who inspire our work. If Camp & Camp can lend our expertise in landscape architecture, urban planning & design to help you transform your next project, I’d love to hear from you.
