I'm Dominique, thank you for visiting!
Branch is a small-scale environmental and design company, started by myself in 2017.
As a qualified Landscape Architect, custodian of this incredible planet earth, and devoted mom, I am passionate about celebrating, enhancing, restoring and preserving the beauty of nature, and leaving a growing mark for generations to come - no matter how small.
My main focus is design in nature's best interest, and the celebration of its beauty. Thoroughly researching every detail of a site in terms of its topography, natural vegetation, history and cultural heritage, I believe that all the answers of what needs to be done are already there- I am merely what I like to call an 'informed creative enabler'.
From macro-scale level I enjoy strategic planning and visualizing interconnected, ecological urban landscapes, down to framework and masterplanning level. Zooming in further, I am also capable of sustainable detail design and the marrying of textures, colour and seasonal plant palettes that enhance biodiversity. Multi-functional landscapes which include food security and edible landscaping is a huge passion of mine which I try to incorporate at all levels.
I love to write, to cook, to eat. A strong believer that our health, what is on our plate, and how we treat the earth are interconnected; I dream about having an impact on creating a more sustainable world.
The name 'Branch' is inspired by John 15:4: 'No branch can bear fruit by itself,' so join us and together let's produce something worthy to magnify the beauty of creation!
So enjoy perusing my site, I would love to work with you.
