'My practice is collaborative and made up of a rich texture of disciplines. I am a landscape architect, artist and public realm consultant'.
Emily Haysom is a member of the Landscape Institute, with a Masters degree in landscape architecture from the University of East London.
She has a passion for creating humane habitats - places where people and nature can flourish.
With a design practice that spans individual gardens to large scale neighbourhoods, Emily is involved from the the conceptual stage through to detailed landscape design and specifications. Current projects include working in multidisciplinary design teams to deliver housing developments on behalf of developer clients, Community Land Trusts and an almshouse charity.
Whilst working as a landscape architect at Groundwork East, Emily designed recreation grounds, school and community gardens, as well as carrying out feasibility studies for Rights of Way, landform, and SuDS schemes, leading projects from consultation and concept design through to delivery and completion.
Emily’s experience of working in the public realm spans fifteen years. Whilst raising her two children, she worked as an artist and in various local authority roles. At Cambridge City Council she ran a community forum for the North West developments, liaising between communities, local authorities and developers. Her artwork achieved recognition in various solo exhibitions and public art projects, many of which were supported by Arts Council England.
Over the years, collaboration with Haysom Ward Miller architects has crossed between art and architecture, as well as landscape and urban design. Emily is married to the architect Rowan Haysom. Together they have developed a collaborative, cross-disciplinary way of thinking and working , supporting each other’s practice.
