Andy Hamilton Studio is an Auckland based landscape design practice. The studio was established in 2015 by landscape architect Andy Hamilton following eleven years practicing in the UK during which Andy spent ten years working as an associate of Tom Stuart-Smith Ltd, an internationally recognised practice based in London. During his time working with Tom Stuart-Smith Andy created gardens in the UK, Europe, India, Morocco and the Caribbean. The studio still collaborates with Tom Stuart-Smith on international projects.
As Tom Stuart-Smith says:
Andy was a pivotal part of the team here and worked with complete authority over a range of challenging projects as far flung as the Caribbean and southern India. A brilliantly creative designer and a wonderful person to work with. I'm very glad that he has agreed to remain affiliated with us to collaborate on Asian projects.
Andy has a degree in Landscape Architecture from Unitec University of Auckland, New Zealand. He began practicing in 2003 working with Auckland based urban design firms City Design and Chowhill Architects before moving to the Uk in 2005. Prior to his studies Andy gained practical experience building gardens in Auckland working with one of the leading landscape contractors Second Nature. He has specialist skills in concept and detailed design, horticulture and project management as well as computer skills in CAD, desktop publishing, hand drawing and 3D visualisations.
