about ELYPS

ELYPS Landscape + Urban Design


ELYPS is a partnership for Urbanism and Landscape architecture. Based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, new landscapes and urban environments are designed.  Theme's as watermananagement, traffic, ecology, housing, city branding, cultural values and sustainabilily are bearers of the design.  ELYPS believes that esthetical design can and must be combined with pragmatism, cost awareness, and a strong eye for the benefits that can be achieved. Some of us look at the stars....   We do!
