Lee-J Studio is a boutique planning and landscape design studio that focuses on creating unique environments to make ‘real-time and timeless impressions’. Our creative and innovative design statements create experiential memories that make our destinations a ‘must return’ location for all. We understand how today’s guests think; their wants and ways they choose to engage in the environment. Through a time-tested design process, we can ensure that our clients and their projects will be a success as we relate and foster today’s trends, cultural relevance, and promote deep appreciation for the location.
Every project begins with an intense design workshop to establish the client’s goals and objectives. Understanding the land, the client’s needs and desires, and the current local market is essential in developing a great design solution.
Innovative design starts with location and understanding its natural resources, culture and traditions. Every design project should have its own distinctive identity throughout the entire property. The character should not only be noticeable, but it should be experienced in a variety of unique ways.
Our concept generation phase is the most critical. A great deal of our time is allocated to fine details to ensure design accuracy that guarantees our client’s satisfaction in later developmental stages.
From the early conceptual design development stage, we involve local designers as consultants to infuse our team with local knowledge of materials and construction techniques. This is a fundamental part of developing the design into a practical project that can be eloquently implemented on location.
The practicality and constructibility of our concepts are explored and refined in the design development stage. It is in this stage where our team will ensure that ideas can seamlessly fit the site and desires of stakeholders. Utilizing the skill set of our engineers, landscape architects, and masterplanners, in conjunction with local design institutes, we ensure our design can be implemented to fit our client’s budget demands.
Simply put, although a beautiful design can be created on paper, if the project is not built in an eloquent way, then the design is mediocre.
Implementing the Design
Every project is handcrafted, as if it is our personal oasis. Working diligently, paying attention to the finest detail is an art form that brings exclusivity to the destination.
Our team has extensive experience in working with construction teams to ensure our concepts and ideas are created.
Our Founder, with over 25 years of experience in the field of Planning & Landscape Architecture, Randy Hoffacker brings innovation and sustainability to his designs. From theme parks to high-end golf facilities; Ski resorts to large-scale residential spaces; he has partnered with top developers on some of the most successful new real estate destinations, including “Forbes List, Asia’s top Resort Destination.”
Embracing the importance of being connected to one’s natural surroundings when designing memorable spaces, he conserves natural elements to enhance one’s experience. With 14 years of construction and project management experience, he is actively involved in the creation process. Known for his ‘hands-on’ and passionate approach, it is normal to see him on earth moving equipment, personally sculpting important features of the landscape. Crossing cultural boundaries to transform design concepts, he sees these creations through to completion.
He holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Landscape Architecture (BSLA) from the University of Kentucky, and is a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects, Golf Course Builders Association of America and Audubon Society Association of America and Audubon Society.
