Laura joined the Ground Studio team in 2020, shortly after graduating with a distinction from the London College of Garden Design, Royal Botanical Gardens Kew.

Before turning her hand to design, she studied European and Asian languages and has worked abroad in international business for over a decade. This combination of work, study, and travel has helped broaden her experiences and as a result she is passionate about creating spaces that not only blend seamlessly with their natural surroundings but also reflect their unique sense of place.  

In addition to Garden Design, she also holds two 1st class diplomas in Japanese and Business Administration, as well as a BA degree in French Studies.

Laura is a keen hiker and photographer, and in 2019 her ‘Garden Route Japan’ photography project received the 2019 Reuters Foundation Hagio Prize.
