Steve explores how our landscapes provide critical benefits and essential functions to the built environment

Having been a part of the HGOR team since its inception, Steve Sanchez utilizes the company’s SEE philosophy known as social, economic and environmental consideration when envisioning a project. As HGOR’s “plant brain,” Sanchez focuses on the plant, design and sustaining the natural environment.

Some of Sanchez’s most notable project include Spelman University, Berry College, University of Georgia Law School, The Lovett School, Pace Academy and Duke Integrative Medicine Center.

 “I’m fascinated with the earth’s natural palette, specifically Atlanta’s sustainable environment,” Sanchez explains. “Over one hundred plant species can survive in the Georgia’s climate and have been proven to help cure illness and increase human productivity, making Atlanta one of the most desirable cities for campus, corporate and healthcare expansion.”

Originally from New Orleans, Sanchez attended the Louisiana State University and received a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture in 1985. Sanchez currently resides in Atlanta with his wife and two daughters and enjoys exploring wetlands, hiking and canoeing in his free time.
