Felixx enjoys being an international platform for landscape architects with a common passion: improving the world we’re living in, and creating happy environments. As a monodisciplinary practice in landscape architecture we collaborate with other disciplines in joint ventures of all forms. As such we try to cover the full width of our own profession by working on public space design projects, developing large scale strategic plans, and setting up research studies of all kinds. The office was founded in 2012 and builds on the international expertise of its partners, Deborah Lambert, Michiel Van Driessche and Marnix Vink. Felixx and his fellows are housed in Rotterdam, in the middle of the harbour area.
