Jessica Gramcko is committed to designing landscapes that strive for both beauty and functionality. She is driven by the possibilities of how good design can facilitate community interaction, spark dialogue, and improve quality of life for its users while maintaining environmental sensitivity. She enjoys designing gardens that engage and enhance the user experience by maximizing spatial connections and perspectives.
Beginning her career studying and then working in architecture in New Orleans, Jessica saw the importance of regional and climatically appropriate design responses within a diverse and environmentally complex city. Her interest in design as an opportunity to facilitate and nurture culture, to address climate changes and to enhance the built environment has continued to develop working in the dissimilar landscapes of Portland, France and now Los Angeles.
As a project manager, Jessica has overseen several project types including: retail and creative offices; market-rate, low-income and veteran housing; small and large-scale single family residences; and a community garden and art center. Additionally, she has worked as part of an international team developing the landscape surrounding a museum space located near Paris and on international competitions in France, Spain and Vietnam.
