[dtls] is excited to announce the addition of Matt Snelling and Michelle Ohle to their roster of professional landscape architects. With nearly 30 years of combined experience, Snelling and Ohle are departing Forum Studio and HOK respectively to round out the talent at the growing firm.
“We are thrilled to be reunited with Matt and Michelle. They bring an energized level of design sensibility to our work that will reach out into every detail we touch. We look forward to the impact their expertise will have on collaborations with our clients.”
This team of senior landscape architects worked together closely for several years at HOK prior to the founding of [dtls]. During their joint tenure at HOK, the team had a major role in the design and implementation of the streetscape and spaces around Busch Stadium, a healing garden at the University of Missouri, the design and documentation for unified streetscape for nearly 40 blocks in downtown St. Louis, a redesign for the Cedars-Sinai Medical Campus in Los Angeles, a replacement hospital campus in Indianapolis, and a first-of-its-kind science and technology university in Saudi Arabia.
While at Forum Studio, Snelling led the site design of Gateway Plaza, a mixed-use tower and urban streetscape in Richmond, Virginia, participated in the site design for the Mercy Virtual Care Center in Chesterfield, and helped create the alignment study for Saint Vincent Greenway and the Trojan Park site design for Great Rivers Greenway. He has a passion for sports-related projects and his client list ranges from the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Blues to the New York Yankees.
During her recent tenure at HOK, Ohle worked closely with The Koman Group and The Laclede Group on the redevelopment of the streetscape, entry plaza and roof garden at 700 Market Street in downtown St. Louis, played a key role in the site design for the St. Louis NFL stadium proposal, and has completed the construction on a regional hospital for the Indianapolis, Indiana area.
Since the founding of [dtls], a WBE certified firm, the group has completed work at Bellefontaine Cemetery, are involved in a redesign of the public realm as a part of the Washington University Medical Center Campus Renewal Project, have developed Traditions Plaza in the heart of the University of Missouri, and have completed various projects on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis.
