Andrea Cochran, FASLA, PLA
Founding Principal

Andrea Cochran brings over 30 years of thoughtful landscape design to her practice in San Francisco. Known for seamlessly interweaving sustainable landscapes, art, and architecture, her designs highlight the experiential qualities of the built environment.  A sense of intimacy and attention to detail infuse each project.  In 1998 she established Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture where the firm tackles a wide range of project types and scales—from single family residences to hotels, wineries, affordable housing, schools, institutions, and public parks. Many of these projects have been widely published and recognized internationally, winning numerous awards.

Andrea lectures extensively, is a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the recipient of the ASLA Design Medal in 2014. Andrea holds a Masters in Landscape Architecture degree from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and is a former Resident at the American Academy in Rome. As a long-time resident of San Francisco, she is committed to contributing to the quality of the urban environment, serving as a Commissioner and Chair of the Civic Design Committee of the San Francisco Arts Commission for seven years. In 2014, Andrea and her office received the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Landscape Architecture.
