ARFOLIA is a Swiss design office that brings together landscape architects inspired by nature. Our expertise encompasses the landscape design of urban rooms, the exterior layout of public spaces, the creation of private gardens and the management of tree heritage. With our innovative approach to landscape architecture, we design projects tailored to your needs, combining aesthetics, functionality and durability. Our team is also at the forefront of new technologies with its digital division and uses BIM to create precise and innovative digital models. At ARFOLIA, we bring life to all outdoor spaces.

Urban pieces

The outdoor development of neighborhoods is of paramount importance in urban planning projects. They offer areas of amenities and greenery in the heart of the concrete, while playing a crucial role in improving the quality of life. These outdoor spaces help regulate heat islands, purify the air and create an environment conducive to biodiversity, while promoting social interactions and naturally linking neighborhoods to each other.

At Arfolia, we put our creativity and pragmatism at the service of the design of these green spaces, while respecting the landscape charter. In close collaboration with our customers, we design outdoor facilities that meet their needs, integrating innovative and sustainable elements, in order to improve everyone's quality of life and promote fluid and secure inter- and intra-district mobility.

Landscaping of public spaces

Developing the exterior of public spaces means participating in the beauty of cities by working collaboratively with municipalities, local authorities and citizens. At ARFOLIA, we are committed to improving the quality of life with innovative and aesthetically pleasing green spaces, which promote biodiversity and the creation of cool islands to bring fresh air and shade to cities. A pleasant environment fosters a sense of belonging. Our approach aims to preserve the environment and design sustainable amenity zones, inviting citizens to connect with nature, come together and create unforgettable memories.

From welcoming squares to lively parks, from scenic promenades to sports areas, and even cemeteries and sewage treatment plants, we put all our enthusiasm into creating harmonious and sustainable spaces that shape a more beautiful horizon.

Creation of private gardens

What if your private garden became a real haven of peace, a unique and personalized place where you could relax in peace? At Arfolia, we believe that each garden is a blank canvas that can become a true work of art, combining aesthetics, innovation and quality.

We put our creativity and our expertise at the service of the design of custom-made private gardens, adapted to your tastes, your needs and your lifestyle. Our experienced teams work with passion to create inspiring outdoor spaces that will allow you to fully enjoy your property and escape from everyday life.

Expertise & dendrology

As tree heritage specialists, we understand the importance of trees in our urban environment, both from an aesthetic point of view and for their contribution to the fight against climate change. We use advanced tools such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to better understand and manage space, as well as advanced technologies such as LIDAR to define the topography of a territory. The preservation of remarkable trees is a priority for us.

We work in close collaboration with local authorities to raise public awareness of the importance of tree heritage and to guarantee sustainable and responsible management of these green spaces, which play an essential role in the quality of life of the inhabitants. Our Expertise & Dendrology service is designed to meet the needs of all those who wish to ensure the sustainability of their tree heritage, whether for an isolated tree or for a large park, whether you are an individual or a community.

BIM & innovation

Innovation is at the heart of our business. We are constantly looking for new techniques, new technologies and new materials to offer our customers innovative, unique and sustainable outdoor spaces. We use state-of-the-art tools such as BIM, Lidar and virtual reality to model tailor-made projects and offer ever larger than life immersive experiences to our clients. Innovations help us move forward every day in our quest for sustainability and excellence.

We are also experts in using innovative and eco-friendly materials to meet demands for durability and excellence, while creating aesthetically pleasing spaces.
