Corlett Landscape Architecture, LLC is dedicated to connecting people to place. The firm is committed to finding opportunities throughout the project process to engage stakeholders and community members, and to ensure that every project is responsive to the history and context of a given site. From project scoping through design, installation and follow up, we collaborate with the project team which may include planners, architects, civil engineers, way-finding and interpretive consultants, and other specialists such as scientists and artists.

The scope of services we offer includes master planning for trails, open spaces and landscapes, and site-scale design including storm-water, native plants and edible garden features for commercial, residential and public projects. We are also available to provide site analysis services and community engagement consulting.

Cathleen Corlett has been a licensed landscape architect since 2002. She holds an undergraduate degree from Wesleyan University and a Master’s in Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon. She grew up skiing in the Colorado Rockies and spends her spare time creating art, gardening, hiking, skiing and botanizing.
