We are delighted to announce the promotion of Peter Baker to Landscape Director.
This strategic appointment reflects the importance of landscape design to NVB and the creation of this role is a recognition of the significant work Peter has undertaken in recent years in developing this aspect of our work. Our landscape team has grown a significant portfolio of work both in conjunction with our architectural work and independently.
Peter originally joined the practice in 2008, becoming an associate in 2010. After a brief spell working on large-scale public sector schemes at BDP, Peter returned to NVB in 2019. Since then, he has continued to develop the breadth, scale and quality of projects undertaken as well as our relationships with both public and private sector clients. Peter’s boundless enthusiasm and energy will be very welcome on the board.
The growing team has some exciting new commissions in hand as we begin 2022 and as part of this development, we are also very pleased to announce the appointments of Jenny Hyden as Landscape Team Leader and Lizzi Rigler as a Landscape Architect. Jenny brings a wealth of experience of design work and project management as well as significant client relationships. Her recent work has included projects at Hauser and Wirth Somerset, The Newt and a range of high-quality private gardens and estates. Lizzi originally joined NVB in 2015 before leaving to gain more experience of practical horticulture at the American Museum, RHS Wisley and Stourhead. She has now returned to join our landscape team bringing with her a diverse range of practical and design skills.
The appointments are part of a wider strategic plan for the future of NVB of which we look forward to sharing more in 2022.
