studio PAD is a Landscape Architectural design firm founded by Peter A Duarte with a simple initiative – be creative and design smart, environmentally sustainable spaces with meaningful, long-lasting identities benefitting humanity and environment.
Every design project, small and large, local and abroad, simple and complex goes through the same design process to establish a strong STORY instilling distinctive quality with smart designed solutions. The meaning of ‘smart’ design is that every project is evaluated for its intended use and function while being designed within project budgets, parameters and constraints. Thus, in turn, creating built environments, that function as intended, and provide people with an enhanced environment for time to come. In current times, SMART designs also encompasses being ‘Green’ and ‘Water-wise’ with every project, taking into consideration the natural environment and local resources to reduce, conserve and recycle as much as feasibly possible.
We pride ourselves in being capable, effective and SMART designers, striving for excellence while collaborating with the project design team to ensure that project goals are met and executed successfully and efficiently.
