ELM has a depth of experience planning and designing environments and communities that wholly integrate the native landscape into the built environment, from large-scale environmental analysis to site-specific planning.

Master-planned communities, resorts, club facilities and amenities, and aquatic facilities require not only thoughtful planning to best accommodate users of all ages and interests, but enduring, sustainable designs that will stand the test of time.

Striking the balance of designing for meaningful human activity while prioritizing ecological preservation and honoring local topography, ELM’s multidisciplinary perspective allows for the creation of environments and communities that reflect the authentic character and culture of their surrounding region.

We focus on incorporating a community’s character-defining qualities—its unique location and natural elements—into every aspect of its design, including amenities, parks, signage, trails and other details.
