Group Picture 2013

Kudela & Weinheimer (K&W) is a professional services landscape architecture firm located in Houston and San Antonio. Founded in 1991 by Thad Kudela and Darin Weinheimer, K&W has grown from a two man shop to a thriving firm which has worked on over 3,000 landscape architecture projects as they approach their 25th anniversary. With exemplary work on landmark, award winning projects such as One Park Place Downtown, Carruth Plaza at Reliant Stadium and BJ Services Office Headquarters, K&W is proud to have become one of Texas’ largest landscape architecture firms.

Thad serves as design principal and his extraordinary design skills account for the firm’s highly inventive work, while Darin acts as construction principal, overseeing Kudela & Weinheimer’s concise construction documentation and helping to move projects smoothly from drawing board to finish. Their steadfast dedication to their clients coupled with a custom, creative approach to each project is their formula for success. K&W’s design philosophy stems from the careful balance of opposites: Harmony/Diversity, Creativity/Practicality, Vision/Focus, Kudela & Weinheimer.
Kudela & Weinheimer excels at the practical aspects of a project. They pride themselves on forecasting costs accurately, scheduling jobs realistically, and executing assignments efficiently. With a strong belief in in acting rather than reacting and delivering on promises, they are highly responsive and consider these basic foundations of their company their secret to their long-term success.
