Portus + Whitton are driven by a passion for landscape and garden design. We were established in the Cotswolds in 1984 by 2 Partners; John Whitton, Dip LA CMLI, and Martin Portus, BA Dip LA. The Company now has 4 Directors and a small team of Landscape Architects, specialising in CAD design, contract administration, garden design, and the research and restoration of historic landscapes.
We are a broad-spectrum practice, and believe our strength lies in identifying the essential character and potential of each site. We have worked on a wide variety landscape projects with considerable experience of historically and architecturally sensitive projects including many for the National Trust, the Cabinet Office in Whitehall and for private individuals.
We also have considerable experience in Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments; Planning Inquiries; higher education projects; health and housing projects; landscape management plans, masterplanning major developments and tourism related work in the countryside. We frequently work as part of multi-disciplinary teams, consulting with public authorities and government agencies.
In addition to these projects the partners have designed a range of landscape buildings including a classical stable courtyard, an opera house, and garden pavilions, conservatories and gazebos.
