Moritz joined the team in 2016. Originally he studied landscape architecture at the University of Gloucestershire, completing his Masters at the University of Sheffield in 2013.
His experience began as an apprentice gardener in Germany working with a company specialising in public open spaces, before moving to the UK and undertaking an horticultural internship at Highgrove House – home of HRH The Prince of Wales. In 2005 he moved to the United States spending a year at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania as part of an international scholarship to further his knowledge in horticulture and the design of landscapes and gardens.
Further internships followed during his university years with several noteworthy garden design practices, including those of Tom Stuart-Smith, Andy Sturgeon and Diarmuid Gavin. He also gained invaluable experience working in Switzerland with Vogt landscape architects and designing a commercial landscape development in Germany. Before joining Balston Agius, Moritz’s roles included working on the Astra Zeneca New Cambridge Headquarters with BDP and Herzog & DeMeuron, with his last assignment being for a private investor developing an industrial estate into a hotel and spa complex.
Moritz is driven by delivering ecologically sound landscape schemes which have a strong relationship with place.
