With her background as contemporary curator and producer, collaboration is at the heart of Miria's creative process. Working closely with architects, artisans, fabricators and suppliers she constantly seeks out new and inventive ways to bring her designs to life. Ever conscious making new things in a world where we produce and consume so much, she always advocates for organic principles and looks to integrate and implement a circular ethos into her designs - often favouring moving and reusing materials and plants with integrity and character. Miria prioritises making sensitive low environmental impact choices, ensuring that hidden infrastructure sufficiently robust to future-proof the gardens and landscapes that she sets out to make.
Miria Harris’s studio is based in London where she works with a team to design and implement a wide range of landscape projects across the UK. Her work encompasses contemporary reimagining of historical gardens for listed buildings, alongside family and wildlife friendly gardens in urban and rural settings and large-scale public planting schemes. Miria has worked with a number of celebrated architects and interior designers including Ilse Crawford, Julian Harrap, Surman Weston and Sergison Bates and is a professional member of The Society of Garden Designers.
"Miria was wonderful to work with. We wanted to incorporate some Japanese influences and she was brilliant at helping us to create a beautiful courtyard garden surrounded by plants; a London garden with a suggestion of Japan. I am no gardener, so she carefully thought through a scheme that needs almost no maintenance from us. The flowers and varying foliage provide colour and interest all year round; one of my favourite times is February when the cherry tree starts to blossom which looks amazing against the dark-grey Belgian bricks. Subsequently she has been great at helping us find local gardening help to keep everything looking amazing. She's incredibly talented and a lovely person, so working with her was a pleasure from start to finish."
