VLA's Cincinnati Office


Vivian Llambi and Associates, Inc. (VLA) offers uniquely integrated services in the areas of Environmental Design, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, and Civil Engineering. Since its inception in 1984, VLA's body of work has demonstrated design solutions inspired by environmental, social, historical, architectural and cultural opportunities. Our practice lives for the knowledge, sensitivity and understanding of the clients that we serve. Every project is enriched when diversity of thoughts and ideas are explored collaboratively among our clients, user groups, consultants, and construction managers. We understand the critical importance that schedule, budget and quality of documents represent on every project, and have invested in the tools and training required to address the requirements.

As landscape architects, urban designers, planners and civil engineers, the people of VLA believe their role in the design process is to add to the quality of the landscape environment while working closely with our clients to meet their goals. At VLA, we strive to produce sensitive and contextual solutions that are purposeful within the greater context and create a "sense of place" and a "quality of life" experience for the community.

VLA's clients include corporations, universities, municipalities, health care providers, parks and recreation departments, and government agencies. VLA's diverse projects include comprehensive services such as planning and design for corporate facilities; parks and recreational facilities; streetscapes; urban plazas; universities; PreK-12 schools; commercial developments; transit facilities; brown-fields; green-fields; and urban riverfronts. VLA has won many design awards and has received local and national attention through a variety of articles appearing in professional trade and business publications.

VLA has participated on numerous comprehensive planning projects where responsibilities have included the inventory of existing facilities; interviews and surveys; site analyses for environmental and planning assessments; socioeconomic studies; feasibility studies; annexation and zoning issues; land use studies; and development guidelines for airports, municipalities, county agencies, and private clients.

VLA's current staff includes senior level landscape architects, urban designers, planners, a civil engineer, project managers, and CADD-proficient designers. In addition to design services, we can provide construction documentation, bidding management, and construction observation. VLA is certified with a number of agencies as a Disadvantaged and Women-Owned Small Business Enterprise.
