Leadership

James Royce and Lynne Giesecke, co-founders of Studio 2112 Landscape Architecture (2011), have collectively been practicing landscape architecture for over 30 years. Through their leadership the Studio strives to provide exceptional design and client service. They consistently work to improve on all aspects of the profession from design innovation and sustainable applications to schedule, budget management and client relationships.

Outside of the studio they teach, lecture, create, compete, perform and play. All of this makes them better practitioners and better people.

In addition to credentials as registered landscape architects, LEED AP, and certified Green Roof Professional (GRP), Studio 2112 is a certified Women Business Enterprise (WBE) in Massachusetts.
