Alexandre Thomas

For twenty-five years this landscape architect has been designing private gardens adapted to the desires of his clients, without silencing his own, powerful personality. In this way he creates unique and original works that have brought growing success both in France and abroad.

His strength lies in the use of striking plants—in terms of shape, size, age and originality—which provide immediate results, in the image of his Agapanthus Garden, which is a living showcase of his savoir-faire.

Like an antiques dealer, he hunts out his plants, searching for rarities. Rigorous in his research, he tends to favour mature plants and trees which are already several decades old and provide a sense of identity to a place.

A strong foundation and heavily emphasized lines add power to the space and to his assemblages.

Firmly established as a non-conformist landscape designer, Alexandre Thomas rejects clichés, marrying classicism and exotic fantasy with audacious rigour, and approaching the garden as a single whole, with stones, fountains, sculptures and lighting.
