Landscape architecte, Founder
Emma is passionate about plants and the way they can influence our well-being and our daily life, when their location is well thought out.
A graduate of HEPIA (Haute École du Paysage, d’Ingénieurie et d’Architecture de Genève) and Lullier (École d’Horticulture de Genève), Emma deepened her knowledge by working 4 years in London with Sara Jane Rothwell. There, she explored the secrets of the “English garden”, as well as perfecting her skills at the Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew, where she obtained her “Planting Design Diploma” from the London College of Garden Design, under the supervision of Andrew Fisher Tomlin.
Specialising in the use of plants, Emma set up her landscape architecture business in 2019. Since then, she continues to hone her skills daily by designing and collaborating on private and public projects of varying scales.
After obtaining a higher technician diploma in landscaping in Nantes, and a degree in tree and forest management in Limoges, Valentine continued her studies at the HEPIA Geneva where she became a landscape architect. She then worked for six years on public space projects for Pascal Heyraud in Neuchâtel. This experience developed in Valentine a sense of space on a large scale. Her good eye and her territorial reflections allow her to create coherent, integrated projects that function in their landscape.
Driven by the desire to return to projects involving plant composition, perennials and the private garden, she joined Emma Voit in January 2021.
