- Marie Stauffer (Green Mouse) Marie studied Landscape Architecture at the reknown ENSP of Versailles in France and retained from these early years in the 'Potager du Roi' a love for productive gardens. She further explored her heritage by completing a master’s degree in Mediterranean Landscapes at University of Marseille. She built experience in multiple high-profile practices both in France (Mosbach Paysagistes, Paris) and around Australia (Plan E, Perth). While working on a large array of projects from international competitions (The Louvre Lens Museum (France), Ni-Ce Resort Island (China)) to large multi-residential developments and subdivisional work, she gained a broad understanding of the multi-faceted skills a Landscape Architect needs to master. She also dabbled in architectural drafting along the way in both countries.
Marie created Green Mouse in 2015 an initiative born from the desire of bridging the cultural gap between architecture and landscape, by offering a boutique-sized landscape architectural practice providing a sound understanding of the architectural and planning constraints of small to medium developments. Marie oversees all of Green Mouse designs and documentation. She also uses Green Mouse to grow awareness of the benefits of landscaping through tight relations with her clients and links to professional associations like the BDAA. Marie became fully registered with AILA in 2021, after completing a mentoring with David Moir (Moir Landscape Architects, Newcastle). Along with recognising a high level of professional qualification, registration is providing Marie with new opportunities to engage for a more sustainable approach to urban development.
