Founded in 1988 by Ken Philp, Kenneth Philp Landscape Architects has grown to become a 5-person firm specializing in residential, urban, public and commercial design throughout the Pacifc Northwest. KPLA's design process emphasizes three equally important and fundamental aspects of design: architectural style, inherent qualities of the site, and our clients’ personality and vision. We believe it is imperative to consider each of these factors, allowing each aspect to shape the design process and create a springboard for our composition of a concept and program. We have employ a diverse team of Landscape Architects, project managers and support staff, and make our clients needs our first priority.
Throughout the progression of a project, each site and situation generates ideas that are unique to itself. Our process-oriented design approach is flexible and adaptable, allowing us to fully address the complexities and opportunities of individual projects and respond in kind. With this tailored process and over 75 combined years of professional experience in planning, design, sensitive areas work, permitting, project management, and construction administration services, we are able to create spaces that distinctively express architecture, site, and the client.
