Aimee Kirby’s design approach is born from her intrigue of the natural world and how it impacts the way see and live out our lives. Motivated by her ongoing interest in sculpture, she sees landscape and botanical design not only as an opportunity to build beauty - but also - as a moment to embrace natural media (terrain, light, flora) as art and functional installation.
At the heart of her work is a deep appreciation for meadowscapes and pollinator habitats, often inspired by her experience cultivating specialty cut flowers at Wollam Gardens in Jeffersonton, Virginia. Her interest in sculpting environments continued to grow with her work with both, the NYC-based design/build firm, Town and Gardens, and the non-profit, the Horticulture Society Of New York.
She founded Ferox Studio to provide clients with an artful range of possibilities that integrate the uninhibited spirit of the natural world into both exterior and interior design. Her process embraces an exploration of opportunities and constraints that works with the land or space and not against it. Examining light, texture, and materiality, she curates narratives and multi-faceted environments that are not only engaging but also feel both formative and feral. In addition to design, Ferox Studio is an avenue to explore the provocative intersections of landscape design with other practices and philosophies, such as writing, photography, fiber art, and beyond
