RANDSOM BROWN

FOUNDING PRINCIPAL ASLA, PLA

“We should not be afraid to create awe-inspiring, human-centered landscapes. The human mind and hand are what create art. Working locally, insight, design, ecology and sustainability are the tools to creating responsibly on a large scale for the client, user and the environment.”

Randsom Brown is an award-winning, published designer who has been fortunate enough to turn his interests of nature and design into a 20-plus year career. His refined eye and interpersonal skills have allowed him to work internationally, specializing in ocean front resorts, beach clubs, large private estates and mixed-use developments.

Randsom’s youthful interest in automotive design led him to pursue an industrial design degree, followed by a seven-year run in the profession. His industrial design work helped him hone his skills in detail-oriented design, creative problem solving and human-centered design.

TONA ALANIS

FOUNDING PRINCIPAL CLARB

"My most efficient way to communicate ideas are through graphics, and my most powerful tools are pen and paper. Successful landscape environments are created and visualized as graphics first and are the result of acutely listening to the client's vision and realizing project opportunities and realities."

Tona Alanis has had the privilege to work on some of the most prestigious clubs, communities, resorts and private estates in the USA, Mexico, Latin America and Asia in his 18+ year career. His experience in design, planning, management and construction administration help him ensure all aspects of every project work together and flow smoothly.

Growing up, Tona had a passion for fine art painting, though his parents persuaded him to study architecture instead for financial stability. After graduating architecture school in his native Mexico, Tona emigrated to the U.S. and put his skills and talent to excellent use through landscape architecture.
