Hi! I’m Erica and I’m behind Gilchrist Design. The Lakes region is amidst massive change in the landscape, and my aim is to integrate design into these changing rural and urban environments. My focus is to make positive and holistic change, and understand the success of any project relies on its impact economically, ecologically and culturally.
Gilchrist Design is a small business, but flexible. The entire workflow is based around effective collaboration, because communication is key. This allows each of my projects the best opportunity for great design, problem solving and client input – from survey, landscape design, integration maps & graphic design.
A background in education, lecturing at Lincoln University School of Landscape Architecture, has instilled a lust for knowledge. I view practice as a way to apply up to date knowledge, and educate the client, community and profession. My practice is committed to employing design approaches backed with research specific to the project and location.
