McCullough Landscape Architecture Expands Bay Area Presence with Oakland Office
McCullough Landscape Architecture, an award-winning landscape and urban design firm, has expanded its Bay Area presence with the opening of a new office located at 1111 Broadway in Downtown Oakland. While the San Diego-based firm has offered services from an office in Fremont, the opening of the Oakland office marks an expansion of the McCullough team.
“By opening an office in Oakland and expanding our team, we will be better positioned to collaborate with owners, developers, architects and other stakeholders, and share our knowledge and expertise even more effectively,” said David McCullough, principal landscape architect at McCullough.
Operations of McCullough’s Oakland office will be led by longtime senior associate designer Mahalakshmi “Maha” Balachandran (pictured) and new team member Akshay Badwe. The company’s previous work in the Bay Area and Northern California includes projects for HPI Architecture, Westfield, RDC, Texas Valley Holdings, The Michaels Organization and Herman Construction.
