About Brittany Blicharz, ASLA
Brittany has ten years of experience in design-focused and project management roles. Her career began with OJB in Houston, where she worked on a range of projects including mixed-use, corporate, academic campuses, and urban parks. She later joined the Solana Beach office, where her responsibilities were split between project pursuits and project management. Touching on many scales and project types with this diverse role, her work expanded into international projects, cultural institutions and resorts. In 2020, she relocated to Denver where she rounded out her project experience by focusing on high-end residential projects.
Despite working on a wide range of project types, Brittany has found her passion in working on residential gardens. Brittany’s stance on design – that design has a story to tell – is echoed in her work by taking a holistic approach to the overall project. She strives to think critically about the landscape’s relationship to the architecture and interiors to execute a harmonious relationship between all three. She feels that exterior materials bring harmony to the architecture, while planting design can give the landscape its own identity. Whether the project demands botanical interest or restoration of a native landscape, she dives into the planting design giving it great thought. Working in several different regions with differing plant palettes has greatly expanded her experience with planting design.
Brittany’s personal interests collide with professional explorations when it comes to garden design. Whether experimenting in her personal garden with various plant species, researching the latest developments in the profession, or diving in deep on a project-specific plant design, Brittany takes a project-by-project approach to finding the right solution to each project, because each site will ask something different of the design.
