Katia Goffin Gardens

Katia Goffin, ASLA

Katia Goffin founded her firm eight years   ago, after gaining more than 25 years of experience in both Europe and the U.S. Now employing three landscape architects and designers, Katia Goffin Gardens is a boutique firm that takes a bespoke approach to the craft of garden design. “Each of our gardens is a response to the clients’ desires and the site’s characteristics,” Goffin says. “Gardens are organized according to classical methods with thoughtful, modernist twists.”

Her work is inspired by a love of nature and an appreciation for the peace of green havens. “From a young age, I spent afternoons at my grandmother’s house, where terrazzo floors bridged the indoors and outdoors, surrounded  by the silence of her garden and its single large  tree that swayed in the wind,” she recalls. “These sensibilities are what we seek to translate: a connection—an experiential response—to nature and beauty.”

To create a brilliant garden experience, Goffin and her colleagues emphasize strong collaboration with the designers, architects, engineers, artists and craftsmen who will ultimately translate vision into reality. Shared iteration during the design process and close management during building and installation ensure the successful completion of unique outdoor spaces. “We blend beauty, order and simplicity to create timeless outdoor rooms,” Goffin observes, adding, “We prize creating spaces that foster well-being and serenity.”
