Bridgette Macilwaine,

Landscape Architect & Garden Design

Bridgette's love of design, nature and outdoor spaces originates from her homeland and childhood in Zimbabwe and Mozambique, climbing rocky outcrops, exploring the natural landscapes and swimming in rivers, every landscape boasting beautiful and explorative characters. 

Bridgette is dedicated to making a positive impact on our interaction between sustainable landscapes and our built environment, and particularly interested in regeneration schemes, biophilia, biodiversity, play and edible designs and community projects. As a designer she aims to create immersive and bespoke designs for each and every client, enhancing the connection between people and nature.

Having gained a range of valuable skills and experience working across a broad range of project scales including large urban developments, private gardens, resorts, roof terraces, play and sustainable drainage schemes and later living developments. She’s particularly inspired with how we connect and experience spaces, textures, scale and plants to create unique designs.

Having previously worked for several highly praised Landscape practices, with Sue Illman and Andy Sturgeon, she has built her knowledge of project management, planting schemes, sustainability, high quality detailing and permaculture practices.

Bridgette is an Associate Member of the Landscape Institute and the Chair for the South East branch, also a volunteer at the Brighton Whitehawk community allotment garden - an immersive garden to learn, connect and grow as a community.

Hobbies include scuba diving, paddleboarding, running, gardening, sketching, hiking, cooking and travelling.
