Scott Torrance Landscape Architect

Scott Torrance Landscape Architect

Scott Torrance Landscape Architect Inc., established in 2004, is a client-focused practice dedicated to providing the highest in client service and design excellence in the public, private and corporate sector.

The majority of our work is realized in the diverse urban fabric of Toronto: a city of 2.5 million people, with a dense tree canopy, cut by deep ravines and located on the shores of Lake Ontario. Our practice strives to augment and enrich the urban experience for people by connecting them to nature and enhancing site ecologies. We advocate strongly for planting native and non-invasive species, reusing storm water runoff, incorporating green roofs and increasing biodiversity in the urban environment.

We have demonstrated award-winning expertise in green roof design, abandoned rail corridors, brownfield redevelopment, multi-use trails, public parks, sustainable parking solutions, condominiums, private residences, institutions, public art and natural children’s play environments. We collaborate with some of Toronto’s leading architects and developers, working with them to meet project goals, sustainability targets, municipal approvals and construction delivery methods.

In order to provide our clients with the breadth of professional services today’s complex building projects require, our firm provides expertise in landscape architecture, arboriculture, urban ecology, LEED and green roof design.
