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 is constantly seeking out new and inventive ways to bring her designs to life. Acutely conscious of the impact of 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 or reusing materials and plants with integrity and character. She is always keen to make sensitive low environmental impact choices  and to ensure that the hidden infrastructure is robust enough 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 small 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. She 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."
