THE TOPE STORY

Sometimes an idea is just floating on the breeze, waiting for the right moment and the right team to make it happen.

Here’s how Tope happened…

Bill Gotthelf, having worked with great Colorado and New York design studios for two decades, dreamed of building his own practice.

Becky Martinek, having founded and successfully run Nature’s Design Associates for two decades, dreamed of transitioning into a retirement of travel and adventure.

Kurt Munding, past chapter president of ASLA Colorado and human Rolodex of Colorado landscape architects, introduced Bill and Becky.

Bill and Becky formed a partnership agreement, and in 2018, Bill founded Tope Landscape Architecture to continue building the trail Becky had blazed.

Tope is here to help your team turn landscape ideas into reality.
