Placemaking for people and nature.

Accessibility, Sustainability, Quality

AS-LA Swedenborg Gardens

AS – Landscape architecture stands for accessibility, sustainability and quality. Our objective is to design inclusive, functional, and beautiful private and public places. To create designs that put users & environment first. Places that positively influence our lives.

We design with the end user in mind, putting people first. All users are welcome in inclusive, accessible, and functional public spaces. The private gardens can be enjoyed by the entire family.

We design with and for nature. Nature is integrated into all our projects from the start. We understand natural cycles, phytosociology, and the vital role contact with nature plays in supporting our health and wellbeing. We apply biophilia principles, the right plant-right place approach to enhance biodiversity and wildlife habitats, as well as sustainable solutions like rainwater recycling.

We work closely with our clients to match their aesthetic wants with space and sustainability requirements, using our creativity and commitment to deliver the highest quality design.

What AS-LA does:

At AS-LA, we work on projects within the public realm, community gardens, indoor greening and garden design.

With our designs, we explore a broad range of concepts relating to inclusivity, accessibility, the social life of public spaces, health and wellbeing, diversity, biophilia, Green-Blue Infrastructure, SuDS, biodiversity, and phytoremediation.

We collaborate with architects, landscape architects, garden designers, community groups and private clients, helping them deliver their projects to the highest standards.

At AS-LA, we believe in sharing the knowledge related to landscape architecture and the benefits of designing with/for nature. We do so with short blog entries, talks and publications.

AS – Landscape Architecture was founded by Anna Sieczak in 2019, when, after years of working in the profession and with the spirit of an explorer, she decided to lead and work on projects that allowed her to venture into new ideas, design areas, and ecology.

Anna Sieczak CMLI

Chartered Landscape Architect (CMLI), Landscape Technician Apprenticeship tutor at Capel Manor College, and member of the London Borough of Tower Hamlet’s Conservation And Design Advisory Panel (CADAP).

Polish by birth, Londoner by choice. She is an avid cyclist and traveller who is passionate about the natural and built environment, sustainability, and equality. She sketches and writes about design, landscape architecture, and garden design.

Her background in oceanography has made her fully aware of the effects of human activity in marine and terrestrial environments, as well as the importance of environmental protection. She became interested in landscape architecture, “the most comprehensive of arts,” because she believes that these changes can be mitigated through careful placemaking, master-planning, and design on small and large scales.

She holds an Engineer in Landscape Architecture (inzynier) degree from KUL in Lublin, Poland, as well as a PgDiploma from the University of Greenwich in London, UK. In May of 2016, she received her Landscape Institute Chartership.

Anna’s previous experience includes project design and management in the UK and abroad, including in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. She has worked on projects of all sizes, from small-scale residential gardens and community projects to large-scale commercial/public realm schemes, from design to completion.
