Robert Myers is an experienced chartered landscape architect who explores the rhythm and flow of buildings, drawing direct parallels between space, light, pattern, repetition and movement to create cohesive outdoor space. He has an innovative approach to using hard materials, and his love of architecture and plants combine to create light, calm and practical spaces.

Robert qualified as a landscape architect at the University of Central England and immediately joined Elizabeth Banks Associates (EBA) in 1993, where he led the team that created the new Duke of York’s Square, Kings Road, Chelsea, which was followed by further work at Cavalry Square and The Saatchi Gallery.

Having completed significant works across London and Cambridge, Robert particularly enjoys working in complex historic landscapes, roof gardens, urban squares and pocket parks. His award-winning practice undertakes commissions from private individuals, rural estates, developers, and institutions such as cathedrals, universities, and schools. He is listed in Country Life’s Top 100 and has won many awards, including six gold medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and the Society of Garden Designers’ Grand Award 2017 for the Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace.
