Robert joined Elizabeth Banks Associates in 1993, as a project landscape architect. He led the team that created the new public space on the former MoD site at the Duke of York’s Square, Kings Road, Chelsea for Cadogan Estates which was followed by further work at Cavalry Square and The Saatchi Gallery. In 2005 he became Chairman of Elizabeth Banks Associates, and the company was re-named Robert Myers Associates in May 2006. The practice continued to grow and build a substantial body of work across the UK and internationally. In 2012 the Cambridge studio was opened.
As the creative head of a small team, Robert is involved with all the practice’s projects at the outset. He is as happy working on large commercial sites as he is creating gardens for private clients. He particularly enjoys working on culturally sensitive sites, and relishes the practical challenges of using landscape design to unite different styles of architecture and create a defined sense of place. His designs tend to be robust, practical and elegant.
His most recent projects are as varied as ever, ranging from Clandon Park for the National Trust to a brand new hotel at Eddington in NW Cambridge, and continued work for schools including Highgate and Uppingham.
The Magic Garden - Robert’s new family garden at Hampton Court Palace - won a Landscape Institute Award and the SGD’s Grand Award, in 2017. He won six Gold Medals and the RHS People’s Choice Award for his gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show between 2003 and 2013, and was subsequently invited to be an RHS Show Gardens judge. He is a Member of the Society of Garden Designers and a Chartered Member of the Landscape Institute, and sits on the Cambridge City Council Design and Conservation Panel.
