Rasmus Grandelag

Studio Manager, SLA Copenhagen

We are experienced in working with landscape architecture across all phases. From the initial dialogue with our clients to community engagement, concept making, detail design, and the realization of the project, we deliver state-of-the-art nature-based design.

Through the years, we’ve done it all. From public spaces such as central parks, vibrant urban spaces, bustling streets, and breathtaking harborfronts. To intimate pocket parks, unexpected rooftops, and intelligent green facades.

We work interdisciplinary and we have a great experience with working with other professions. We always seek for new collaborations to infuse and challenge our creative processes.
