TL Studio Landscape Architecture

TL Studio (TLS) is a full service landscape architecture firm with offices in Providence, Rhode Island and Falmouth, Massachusetts.  Founded by Tom Lee, after more than 20 years of practice, TLS brings a diverse body of work ranging from residential gardens to institutional and public projects.  At the heart of our practice is the goal to establish landscape design as the link between architecture, site and environment.  We strive to create simple and beautiful landscapes that express a sense of place and strong connectivity to a region’s ecology, culture and history. New England’s rich natural and cultural history, its diverse mix of landscape patterns resulting from glacial, agricultural and urban forces, are an endless source of inspiration for our work.
