Marnie Lewis, is the principal of Marnie Lewis Design, a landscape architecture and
design studio founded in 2007. MLD provides landscape design solutions for private
residences, residential developments, rural and commercial properties.
Marnie is known for her attention to detail and her commitment to excellence and
quality. Her designs are structured and carefully composed ensuring that colour,
texture, scale, proportion, form and function are all in balance.
The architecture and interior design usually informs the landscape style, however
site conditions, aspect and geographical location also play a major role. Marnie’s
design style is modern classic with luxurious finishes which in turn creates landscapes
of timeless appeal.
Visualising space and styling come naturally to Marnie. She has a comprehensive
knowledge of plants, building materials, surface finishes, furniture, lighting and
accessories which shines through in her designs. She is passionate about bringing
the landscape inside and blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Growing up Marnie always had an affinity with nature and the outdoors and a strong
passion for art and design. Combining these two loves Marnie settled on a career
in Landscape Architecture and was accepted to study her Bachelor of Applied Science
(Landscape Architecture) at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT). After
graduating in 2003 she worked for a top Melbourne landscape designer and two leading
development companies before starting her own business.
