Lise Benningen MLA , BED, DCS, CMLI

Senior Associate

Studied Costume Studies (Diploma) at Dalhousie University, Canada, 1999; Studied Environmental Design at the University of Manitoba, Canada, 2004; Studied Landscape Architecture at the University of Manitoba, Canada, 2006

Lise joined Grant Associates in 2006 and has been involved in a variety of UK and international projects, including the Theme Gardens at Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, Park Hill in Sheffield and the Ramsar/Sungei Buloh Twinning Project in South East Asia.

Lise takes particular inspiration from the haptic aspect of design, from the sensory experience of the future user to the design subtleties of pattern and symbolism. With a background in the costume arts, Lise has a continued interest in materiality and contrasting scales to inform the detail design of her projects. These combined approaches make her work rich with colour, texture and meaning.
