PLANT Architect Inc. is an award-winning practice that branches into architecture, landscape, and design. On projects ranging from modest residential renovations to urban renewal on a civic scale, our studio's architects and landscape architects collaborate across disciplinary borders to reveal a site's potential and explore its context. Both meanings of "PLANT" inspired our name: we are makers who value process, craft, and construction, and we have a deep-rooted connection to a sense of place, landscape, and natural materials.
Plant & Moss was conceived in 2009 by James Plant and James Moss as a British design brand that creates contemporary design with character and charm. Handcrafted in Great Britain, their products are made using a mixture of time honored skills and modern techniques.

Founders James Plant and James Moss both graduated in Contemporary Furniture and Related Product Design, from the home of furniture, Buckinghamshire Chilterns University in High Wycombe.

and planting of seedlings each rainy season and the year round production
