Gavin Duke, PLA

Gavin Duke was raised in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. At an early age, he began putting ideas on paper — sketches reflecting the natural beauty of the woodlands, local craftsmen and their work, and surrounding farms. His passion for creating has continued throughout his life and reveals an innate understanding of how to design well-organized spaces. His travels to remote corners of the world allowed him to gather ideas and experience historic, traditional, and modern spaces. A deep understanding of the history of place and the contextual elements of landscape architecture guide his designs towards preserving and respecting each project’s spirit for a seamless integration of the built environment with its surroundings.

Gavin received his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture in 1987 from the University of Arkansas. His work has been published in several national and international publications.

Brittany Dingler, PLA

Originally from southwest Arkansas, Brittany grew up surrounded by nature. From the mountains, springs, and waterfalls to the pines and rolling farms, these landscapes shaped her passion for the living environment. Brittany is particularly drawn to the ever-evolving nature of landscape architecture, where plants can be the greatest enhancement to a space, and joy is found in the smallest details.

Outside the office, you’ll find her searching for the latest indoor plant to add to her collection or on the trails with her husband Drew and golden retriever, Ryman. Brittany received her Bachelor of Landscape Architecture in 2015 from the University of Arkansas.

WES HODGES

Born and raised in Goodlettsville, Wes was inspired to have an impact on Nashville after his time at The University of Kentucky. Bringing nature back into our cities remains his greatest inspiration. His mission is to make urban landscapes cleaner, healthier, and more efficient while improving our experience as pedestrians. 

Wes swims, bikes, and runs around town when not cheering on his Kentucky Wildcats or designing urban spaces.

KEELEY MCCUTCHEON

Born in Nashville and raised just outside of Memphis, Keeley is a Tennessean through and through. Having grown up in a suburb that was halfway between rural and urban, Keeley was able to use the intersection of the two to develop her own unique perspective and artistic style. She has always been creative and is excited to hone her craft further with Duke Design Group. 

She is thrilled to return to her roots after studying at Louisiana State University, from which she recently graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture Degree. In her spare time, Keeley has an eclectic taste for all types of arts and culture, including musical theatre, reading, and watching LSU sports.
