ArtGarden Design specializes in urban gardens with unique character. We have the vision to create comfortable, usable outdoor spaces which have a clear order and utilize simple but rich palettes of materials. Through creative collaboration with clients, architects and a variety of artists and landscape contractors, we develop finely crafted gardens that are responsive to the requirements of each site and its program. We manage our projects from design through installation.
Established in 2001 by Anya Zmudzka, the practice is located on Capitol Hill with numerous built projects in the greater Washington area. ArtGarden Design's work has been recently selected for a case study for The Home Outside written by Julie Moir Messervy, the co-author of Outside the Not So Big House. Anya holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from School of Visual Arts in New York City and a Masters in Landscape Architecture from University of Pennsylvania. She is committed to improving the community and creating opportunities for a collaborative design process with local area sculptors and craftsmen. Participation in community-based projects complements the residential design work by drawing on Anya's educational background grounded in issues of urban revitalization and public art.
