TGP, Inc. is a professional practice offering consulting services for solving contemporary landscape design challenges. As a service-oriented firm founded in 1994, TGP is committed to providing clients a unique level of attention, responsiveness, and quality control for a reasonable fee. A site-specific approach to the design of each project is the hallmark of the firm, an approach that ensures a distinctive product by responding to a project’s individual challenges and characteristics – the context, the topography, the history, the budget.
The firm's principal, Rob Pressman (Harvard Graduate School of Design 1974) has been engaged in diverse project types throughout his career, bringing knowledge and experience in landscape architecture, site planning, and urban design to the practice. He lived and worked in Melbourne, Australia and Jerusalem, Israel for a number of years, before taking on the role of Design Principal at an established firm in Los Angeles. In 1994, together with a partner, Rob founded TGP, Inc., which provides a hands-on commitment and follow-through in all of its projects, from the conceptual design phase to installation, creating attractive, innovative and functional environments.
TGP has undertaken a broad spectrum of work, both nationally and abroad, including master-planned residential and resort communities, apartment and condominium complexes, affordable and redevelopment housing, model, custom and estate homes, hotels, parks and recreational facilities, and commercial and institutional projects.
Some current Southern California projects include the landscape design of a mixed-use project in Hollywood with 375 units, 377,900 sf of retail space; 2 hotels in Oxnard; a mixed-use project with 162 units and 5000 sf of commercial space in Chinatown, and a senior housing community with 249 units in Yorba Linda. The firm is also designing the landscapes for several affordable housing developments in Los Angeles, including one for Veterans.
