DELVA Landscape Architecture Urbanism

DELVA is a leading office for landscape design and urban planning. We are convinced of the power of our craft: working with the systematics of nature to tackle the major challenges of the future. That is why we turn the design process upside down and take the landscape as our basis. We use spatial development as a means of densification, greening and sustainability.

Starting from the essence of the place, we create meaningful landscapes and spatial experiences, from sketch to realization. By taking a position and cooperating integrally with all partners in the design process, we connect the landscape intrinsically with buildings, technology, policy and financial viability.

DELVA is located in the heart of Amsterdam and is led by founding partner Steven Delva and partner Emiel Swinnen. They are supported by Rogier Hendriks (concept and design), Sander van den Bosch (engineering and implementation) and Jeroen Jacobs (planting specialist). Since our foundation, we have grown into a dynamic and solid team of 25 landscape architects, urban designers, architects and cultural technicians. Over the years, we have built up a broad portfolio, with a rich diversity of locations, scale levels, phases and typologies. We have won multiple awards and are very proud to have been announced Architect of the Year.
