Duke Design Group is a boutique landscape architecture firm founded in 2022 in Nashville, Tennessee. Gavin Duke has been a practicing principal in the region for over 30 years. We pride ourselves in the ability to sensitively respond to each client’s unique site and program. The diverse cross section of projects (from small urban spaces to multi-acre farm tracts) in our repertoire speak to the depth of professional talent within our office. Fostering long-term relationships with our clients, design professionals, and craftsmen is of the utmost importance.  

Integral to our design beliefs is the idea that each project should have a regional and local ‘voice’ by using vernacular materials, enhancing the contextual individuality of the site. Sun exposures, topographic constraints, privacy concerns, and ecological issues all contribute to the development of the masterplan design. Emphasis is placed on the interactive relationship with the client and team members to create the appropriate plan addressing the particularities and opportunities of the site. Subsequently, our office develops working drawings to guide the construction process to bring the vision to life. DDG strives to design in harmony with architecture and nature, while always keeping the client’s needs at the forefront.
