Joseph Hadley, the founder of Hadley Design Studio Inc, a landscape architect and planner since 1983, has worked in California since 1995. He is a graduate of the University of Florida’s School of Architecture where he received his Bachelor of Science in landscape architecture cum laude.

Having worked for two internationally reknowned planning and landscape architecture firms (EDSA and EDAW) over a period of 15 years, Mr. Hadley has been engaged in the design and planning of a wide variety of project types worldwide. He is known for a particularly broad scope of knowledge ranging from green planning concepts and development strategy to elegant and efficient detailed design. During three years of this timeframe he lived in France, first serving as the Interim Director of Landscape Architecture for EuroDisney, then opening an office for EDSA in Paris.

Mr. Hadley recently spent several years working with a resort hotel in Healdsburg, California managing an extended period of its renovation and market repositioning. During the design, renovations, construction and subsequent operations of the property, he achieved an enhanced understanding of guest service and operational requirements for hospitality oriented design.

Currently Mr. Hadley is focusing his efforts primarily on local projects, trading travel time for design time, serving a select list of clients in achieving extraordinary design solutions for their properties. The project list is maintained to permit his complete involvement in each project. This hands-on approach from start to finish affords each project the greatest benefit from his experience, as well as offering Mr. Hadley the joy of hand crafting each design.
