ReardonSmith Landscape Rebrands to Expand in New Sectors.

Award winning landscape architects, ReardonSmith Landscape, rebrands to Realm.

Led by Ed Freeman, the landscape architectural practice has worked on leading hospitality projects alongside ReardonSmith Architects for 10 years, whilst also developing a wider independent portfolio of high profile and prestigious landscape and public realm projects with other leading Architects and Clients.

“We have worked with Ed who co-founded and led ReardonSmith Landscape for many years. Ed and his team have a wealth of talent and are a joy to collaborate with.  Naturally we are sad to see them leave the ReardonSmith family however given the breadth of sectors and markets that the team are expanding within, it’s important that the new brand represents this. Of course, we will continue to work together with Realm, and I am excited about this new chapter for the team.”

Patrick Reardon – Founder, ReardonSmith.

Ed’s extensive UK and international background began with him working at leading landscape practices Lovejoy London, Whitelaw Turkington, and McGregor Coxall.

His past work portfolio includes many high-profile projects including Christchurch Gardens in Victoria Westminster, Seething Lane Gardens (Four Seasons Ten Trinity) and St Mary Axe public realm in the City of London, Porto Montenegro marina and Regent Hotel, and Adare Manor Hotel Ireland.


Ed Freeman comments:

“Initially our work focused on the world’s leading luxury hotels and resorts, and it made sense to be linked by name with ReardonSmith Architects that led globally in this sector.

Today, almost a decade on, the team and I have evolved the practice to work not only in luxury hospitality, but also across a variety of high profile and prestigious public realm, residential, commercial, retail and later living projects.”

Realm are currently working on 15 projects in 5 countries including; leading the landscape and public realm design at Finsbury Circus Gardens City of London, roof gardens and public realm improvements at 20 Carlton House Terrace a commercial headquarters in St James’s, a series of later living dementia sensory gardens at Abbey Road, Kensington Square, Notting Hill and Belgravia, a 2 hectare landscape and public realm masterplan at Harlow Quarter in Essex, and NPSA’s Public Realm Design Guide to integrate HVM in public spaces.


“I am delighted to now position the brand to acknowledge our expertise across these wider realms and sectors. It is an exciting time for us, and we look forward to continuing our existing client relationships and developing future collaborations with other leading designers and visionary Clients over the coming years.”
