A national leader in green infrastructure design with over 80 projects completed throughout the United States. 

Urban Rain Design, a design studio founded in 2012 by nationally award-winning landscape architect Kevin Robert Perry, provides green infrastructure visioning, planning, and technical design/implementation assistance for communities throughout the United States. The firm collaborates with architects, engineers, landscape architects, and public/private agencies to develop elegant yet functional techniques to retrofit the urban fabric with sustainable stormwater management. Urban Rain Design's philosophy is to boldly use the landscape to not only manage stormwater, but to also create highly successful urban spaces. Kevin Robert Perry has the unparalleled visionary and technical expertise to walk through a project site and develop a full toolbox of green infrastructure design strategies. Ultimately, the firm aims to help build high-caliber green infrastructure projects with a strong degree of detail and functionality that exemplify how cities can transform gray space into green space.  Urban Rain Design is a certified Small Business Enterprise by the California Department of General Services.

Urban Rain Design promotes traditional forms of urban development that focus on compact, pedestrian-scale, and place-making communities that also integrate practical and functional landscape systems, often referred to as green infrastructure, to help heal the environmental impacts of urbanization. During the last century, the rapid build out of our communities, whether ultra-urban or suburban in form, have systematically displaced the natural landscape and the critical systems reliant on this landscape.  The environmental, economic, and social/human health costs of this built pattern are only now being fully realized.  Urban Rain Design is committed to helping reverse the negative environmental effects of urbanization and is excited to work with like-minded professionals to help communities create better places to work, play, and live.

"We believe the landscape can be surgically inserted back into the built realm to help repair the effects of urbanization and create spaces that are attractive, distinctive, and economically vibrant."
