Amelia Tollitt

Amelia joined Planit-IE in summer 2013 after completing her Masters Degree at the University of Sheffield. She spent her year in practice at Grant Associates where she was involved in a wide range of projects from education and housing to high profile parks and public spaces in the UK and Southeast Asia. Within her work she encourages the use of graphics through from conceptual to detail design, and the integration of ecological processes and water systems into the built environment. She also has a keen interest in the theoretical research within the social aspects of landscape, particularly in human-environment relations and spatial languages. She has a particular interest in planting and strongly believes that well considered planting design defines a successful landscape scheme.  Amelia enjoys using different medias of handrawing and painting to capture texture in a landscape as well as photorealistic rendering.

Caroline Lord

Caroline joined our Altrincham Studio as an intern from the University of Copenhagen. After graduating she began working full time before migrating down to our London Studio in February 2014.

Alongside working at Planit, Caroline has designed and been involved in the build of ‘Industrial Transitions’; a Show Garden at the 2014 RHS Tatton Flower Show, which was awarded both Gold and Best in Show medals.

Caroline has worked on several smaller private garden projects and is currently gaining experience in the education sector, through design to delivery on site for a through school in Harrow, North London.

Jotaro Tokunaga

Jo joined our Altrincham studio in 2013 after graduating from the University of Sheffield with a MLA. Throughout his year in practice and post-graduation he spent time travelling North America, Europe and Japan, soaking a range of built projects and cultural landscapes, which informs his problem solving and design approach to unique sites, detailing and contemporary practice.

His competition entries and student work has been published in the Journal of the Landscape Institute and he received the national Landscape Institute student award in 2011. His interests lie in graphical representation and the arc between the geographical sublimities of a powerful site and the sociological opportunities present in restorative and responsible placemaking.

At Planit Jo has become a valued member of the team and provides an informed approach to landscape architecture, providing the studios with a wealth of project examples and case studies. He utilizes this knowledge through his work which includes a number of key sports, leisure and challenging public realm projects.

Luke Whitaker

Luke joined our London Studio after completing a three month internship in North America, gaining valuable experience in both large scale master planning and smaller scale landscape design. Graduating from Writtle College with a First Class BSc Honours degree Luke has developed strong skills in both conceptual design and graphic representation. With a background in landscape construction underpinning his design process, Luke can question conventional responses to landscape architectural problems whilst ensuring a practical and deliverable solution is met.

Scott Badham

Scott joined our Altrincham team after graduating from Manchester School of Architecture, and has since migrated to our London studio. Scott’s background in graphic design allows him to challenge the rules of Landscape Architectural representation, both conceptually and as an applied process. This earned him recognition during his studies, winning the Landscape Institute NW student portfolio award and achieving a shortlisted entry to the international competition ‘A High Line for London’. Utilising graphics as a means of thinking as well as communication, enables Scott to question conventional responses and provide alternative scenarios to problem solving. We see these skills as an important addition to those that underpin the practice of Landscape Architecture and Scott is enthusiastic at bringing them to a professional level at Planit.
