About My Business:



CEO, Founding Principal

A native of Los Angeles, John Feldman studied at the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Landscape Architecture. Before beginning his professional career he embarked on an extensive overseas study program traveling throughout China and Southeast Asia. Through both his own individual study and his collaboration with professional offices and universities, he sought to explore, in depth, the social and cultural impacts on architecture, urban planning and the natural environment.

Feldman has been involved in a wide range of project types, including commercial retail, street improvements, museum and institutional, public open spaces, multi-family housing/mixed use planning, residential gardens and estate master planning. His skills reflect the diversity of the projects and his ability to provide expertise in design, public relations, technical problem solving, scheduling and budgeting issues.

Feldman enjoyed his tenure while at some of the most prolific design firms in Los Angeles. As Director of the Landscape Studio at KAA Design Group, he directed all aspects of design, management, and construction administration for the range of opportunities at the firm. Feldman credits having honed his skills in design and theories in "regional contextualism" while at the firm Nancy Goslee Power and Associates. In addition to strong business skills developed while having formerly operated the firm Garness / Feldman - Architecture + Landscape, Feldman brings extensive international design experience from having completed landscape projects in many countries around the world.

Licensed in California, Feldman enthusiastically leads Ecocentrix, Inc. with vigor, vision, and evolved paradigms , with resulting design investigations spanning traditional to progressive - where ever the firm's work takes them.

ECOCENTRIX - Firm Profile

Ecocentrix was founded on the fundamental premise that - the quality of the experience and function of landscapes is achieved by understanding inherently "what is" and "what is wanting", and that quality of life is a reflection of the quality of the landscape.

It has remained our charge to maintain a keen understanding of our client’s individual and collective interests and lead each project with an evolved vision for how these may manifest within.

The firm’s work is rooted in investigations of residential estate and resort style living. Our clients are characterized by their culturally rich backgrounds and sophisticated design tastes, ranging from traditional to contemporary, and whose personal lifestyles and histories include a diverse range of travel and worldly explorations. This has availed us the opportunity for continued studies in the area of luxury living, and to enjoy work internationally.

Whether residential resort or resort hotel, our approach to site planning and amenity design bears a similar thread. We artfully interact with nature by thoughtfully manipulating natural and constructed form, recognizing that the art of landscape is in the interaction of human and non-human nature. It is in this way that we may accentuate and amplify space.

Our body of work exemplifies great stylistic range and restraint produced with consistently high quality. Our projects are immediately mood altering, celebrating the sensual and tactile temperament that is the fabric of landscape.

Our design creates the ground for celebrating the cycles of all life, and is the foundation of regional identities enveloping cultural distinctions. It reinforces what is powerful and enhances what is weak. Ecocentrix endeavors to “Enrich Life Through Design”.
