TERRIGENOUS Landscape Architecture has been operating in Chester since 1998. The studio was initially on the Ethen Allen Road and now resides in the Chester Depot just north of the Chester Town Hall.
Community involvement, utilization of local materials, and an office location that is easily accessible have become the foundation for design exploration and craftsmanship.
Scott Wunderle, PLA, ASLA
Scott grew up in southern Vermont.
As one of four children raised by a sociologist and a philosopher, his childhood was a combination of art, music, labor, family, being out-doors, projects, and travel. The importance of being true to yourself and respect for the surrounding landscape were the basis for much of the way he grew up.
From 1988 to 1993, Scott attended Rhode Island School of Design and earned a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art, and a Bachelor Degree in Landscape Architecture. Following graduation he worked as a model maker for Martha Schwartz Inc., as an intern at Harvard University's Arnold Arboretum, and for Gordon Hayward Landscape Gardening and Design in Westminster, Vermont.
Scott has two teenage children Tuckerman and Angelae, or as they like to be called "Tuck" and "Ange". They are a source of pride, and a humbling reminder that all our efforts are a work in progress.
Civil engineering technician
Since joining our team in 2006, Patrick has been involved in most aspects of construction including operating heavy equipment vehicles, communicating with subcontractors on site, and leading surveys and layout. With over 16 years of CAD design and drafting experience, his ability to create clearly readable and usable drawings has been a long-term asset for Terrigenous.
Lauren is a University of Vermont graduate who majored in community development with a background in holistic design and web design. She handles administrative office tasks in the studio, while providing general project support and helping with our social media and online presence.
Courtney is a gardener and garden designer from Athens, VT who earned a B.A. from Sweet Briar College. She understands the growth habits and needs of a multitude of plants and brings that knowledge to the work we do. Courtney operates as a private consultant assisting throughout the design process and has partnered with Terrigenous on numerous projects.
Neil and Scott grew up together riding bicycles and listening to music. After attending Tufts University and the University of Vermont, Neil moved to Seattle and began a career in wine making. Currently he works as cellar master for Lauren Ashton Cellars (a boutique winery in Woodinville, Washington).
While the grapes are growing, Neil drifts eastward to participate in the Roots on the River music festival and to work as a part of the TERRIGENOUS team. He is especially astute at keeping everything working and excels at detail-oriented research required by many of the projects.
We do enjoy his wine but hate to see him leave in the fall.
