Charlie Ray, ASLA - Principal at The Green Room Landscape Design (GRLD)
With the formation of The Green Room in 2005, Charlie has had the opportunity to design exceptional landscapes which represents his passion for nature, art, and the connection to people and places. Charlie’s innate understating and design sensibility was cultivated by his parents at a formative age while growing up in the inspiring Sonoran Desert. His collective education, in the School of Architecture and Fine Art at UC Berkeley, California College of the Arts, and Arizona State University, introduced him to a number of extraordinary design mentors that played a significant role throughout his education and career.
Mr. Ray has been recognized for designing a distinguished and notable body of commercial and private estate work throughout the country. Within this diversity, a common design tread exists which celebrates nature, people, and places, while creating an environment which elevates one’s experience and heightens the senses. Mr. Ray’s design acumen and extensive knowledge of natural and architectural materials allows him to design outdoor spaces that transcend environments and creates a timeless appeal. Charlie’s passion for creating stunning and compelling landscapes has become a natural extension of himself, while celebrating people and nature together in the most meaningful way.
