Studio Bellesi Giuntoli was founded by Silvia Bellesi, Dr Agronomy and by Alberto Giuntoli PhD and Professor at the University of Florence. We are currently leading a large and articulated team of specialists to provide our garden and landscape design services. Since the 1980s our business is aimed at people who love our contemporary Italian style: we have fused the ancient tradition of garden art to Italian with the most modern contemporary technologies and experiments on a global scale.
Starting from the analysis of the “genius loci” of a place, the garden design activity of our Firm develops from the stylistic desires of the Client. Our garden design service goes through all the necessary steps of the design process, from concept design to supervision of works, following an approach based on botanic and construction materials knowledge. Thanks to our experience in garden design, we can bring life to public and private gardens at different scale, from public parks to small backyard gardens.
Our Firm works also at bigger scales, like master plan and urban planning. After a thorough evaluation of the features of a place, we traduce them into a master plan capable of improving its potential and coherent with the surrounding landscape. High quality master plan and urban planning are the cornerstones to design functional and beautiful parks, public gardens and open spaces.
Our Firm features experts in many fields, from agronomists to architects and engineers, specialized in environmental consulting. Thanks to our experience in environmental consulting, our experts guarantee a high qualitative and technical level, built on the profound knowledge of plants and their biologic processes. Our environmental consulting service starts from the analysis of environmental and ecologic parameters, with an approach oriented to maximize the benefits that plants could bring to urban ecosystems.
Historic gardens restoration is a field in which we have specialized since the start of our professional activity. Thanks to our experience, we can evaluate each feature connected to the historic gardens restoration, particularly the botanic, static, historic and cultural knowledge of the vegetation of a historic garden. Starting from archive information and on-site surveys, we can develop a historic gardens restoration project complete in all its details.
Our Firm collaborate with research centers and universities to research project in different fields, from phytoremediation to urban comfort, always with special care for sustainability and environmental improvement. Our professionals participate to conferences and events on landscape architecture and environmental sustainability. At specialized schools and universities, we practice teaching about garden design.
Our experience has allowed us to acquire an elevated level of specialization in public and private gardens design at any scale: from small backyard gardens to private parks, from winter gardens to green roofs, we put always great attention to details, both in the selection of materials and plants.
The design of parks is another important field in which we have great experience. Our design practice has specialized also in master plans and urban planning, as well as collaborating with engineering and architecture firms to international competitions.
Our professional activity has focused on restoration of historic gardens from the start. For us, restoration is a cornerstone field, because historic gardens are a fundamental asset both historically and culturally, but also because of their environmental and ecologic value.
