Anne-Fleur Aronstein is an international landscape architect hailing from the Netherlands but based in Ibiza. She obtained a Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from the Academie van Bouwkunst in Amsterdam and soon afterwards began working for well-known design studios such as Buro Kiefer in Berlin, Bureau B+B stedebouw en landschapsarchitectuur in Amsterdam and Michel Desvigne Paysagiste in Paris.
In 2016, she founded her eponymous studio focusing on the interdisciplinary domain of landscape, architecture and design. Long-time friend and renowned architect Rafael Pailoux introduced Anne-Fleur to a client and subsequently from whom other projects quickly followed. In 2018 she finally made the move from Paris to Ibiza and has been on the island ever since.
The studio’s work varies from creating private and public designs to developing spatial concepts in different landscapes or urban contexts, taking an analytical approach whilst focusing on rethinking and improving the quality of the public and private domain in a smart, sustainable and collective way.
“Time and seasonal transitions are inextricably linked to the profession, but they are also an important tool in my work; they are made visible and are carefully designed”.
Her studio works with many different disciplines dictated by the project, collaborating with architects, artists, cartographers, botanists, engineers and lighting designers along with other local site-specific specialists.
“I take the highest importance in supervising the realisation of my projects in order to guarantee the quality at the completion of the design as well as satisfaction of my clients.”
Sensitive to the ‘genius loci’; the spirit of the place, local materials and techniques, climate and vegetation, she translates spatial concepts with detail into poetic, coherent and meaningful landscapes.
“I start my projects by reading the landscape. The relationship between human and space takes a central part in this approach but I find the skill lies in defining how space and man relate, and realising their potential”
