topio studio is led by Francois Leroy who is an energetic and passionate landscape architect, with a strong portfolio of award-winning international projects gained from work in his native land of France and overseas in Europe, Asia, and Australia. His broad and diverse work experience has given Francois an excellent insight in how to interpret, nurture and embellish the social and cultural demands, inherent within each place.
The studio has a strong ethos for design excellence and sensitivity to nature built on core pillars, associating harmoniously both French and English landscape culture to foster sustainable and innovative design solutions. Aligned with an in-depth knowledge of horticulture and planting, Topio studio's design aims to heighten human emotions and stimulate the senses, through careful plant selection which control the use of color, texture, form, and smell. All of our design support the need for human connection, identity and enjoyment to address a better answer and significantly improve the quality of leaving.
Its ability to interpret and anticipate urban and social challenges, enable the studio to carry out sensitive, economic and sustainable projects; being effective in responding to any scale or typology in both public and private sector. The practice is commissioned on full scope projects as well as on specific strategic/diagnostic and support to contracting parties.
