Landscape architect Andy Millenier designs and develops beautiful country estates in harmony with the natural entourage and cultural context where something fundamentally human can be experienced. Places with an optimal experience where meeting and involvement are central. Where the road to it is equally important. Where a balance between openness and security gives people a comfortable feeling or where the ritual of parting and the later commemoration of a loved one continue in a serene frame. Places where the art of living, the art of dying and the art of letting go find the perfect harmony. Under the succession of the seasons, with a combination of shapes and lines, closeness and perspective, the places designed by Andy Malengier are small oases of peace and quiet. Places that modern man in his banal and profane daily world needs.

As a child Andy had a constant fondness for nature, landscapes and signs. At the age of 15 he went to Ghent to attend classes in the Artistic Humanities department of Sint-Lucas (where he received oales from Gilbert Decouvreur, a meeting that would permanently draw him.) He was not only confronted with signs and designing, but also with architecture, design, art, painting, building scale models.
Landscape architect Andy Malengier designs oases of peace and quiet: places that modern man needs in his everyday world.

Experience the work of Malengier.
