Quinn Craughwell, Associate, CMLI ASLA
Combining a background in natural sciences with a master of landscape architecture, Quinn utilizes scientific and natural systems as the foundation for thoughtful, sensitive designs. She enjoys working closely with her clients and with design teams to create landscapes that are the result of a shared vision with the most informed results possible. Having worked in the Mid-Atlantic and South Eastern regions of the United States for fourteen years, she was part of a design team for the prestigious Blackberry Farm resort in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, as well as developing the masterplan for a new vineyard and event centre in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia. Both projects were examples of carefully integrating new development within an area of natural beauty. Since joining Colvin & Moggridge, she has been involved in returning a Grade I listed country house hotel back into a family home, where meadows, orchards and formal gardens are replacing austere lawns and oversized parking areas. Quinn is currently part of a multidisciplinary design team working on the major redevelopment of an expansive walled estate. The estate lost both its mansion house and formal gardens in the 1950s, but retains much of the 19th C. landscape features and notable garden structures. The setting of these historic structures will be revitalised by the return of a prominent mansion and formal gardens, as well as by estate wide projects such as parkland tree planting, estate fencing, drive realignments, and a conservation management plan.
