The company’s strength lies in seasoned yet still enthusiastic landscape architects, combining their professional skills and experience with those of a resourceful and hard-working team on the ground.
DIONAEA-VRTOVI was established in 1996.
Our goal in every project we undertake is to make it functional, innovative and creative. After listening to our clients, together we formulate such a solution that will satisfy their wishes and needs, improving the quality of life. Project complexity provides an additional impetus and motivation to us, while observing landscape architecture standards serves as our main guiding light in its implementation.
As professionals, we also accept certain social responsibility; in our work we strive to mediate objectively between the goals of modernising living on the one hand and those of preserving our natural and cultural values on the other hand.
