Matthew Tanicello

Senior Landscape Designer

A self-trained furniture builder with experience working construction, Matthew Tanicello brings an acute appreciation for craftsmanship and constructibility to landscape architecture. He is exceptionally talented with construction detailing, stewarding many of RELM’s projects through construction documentation. Commissions he has led in this capacity include the New Natural Resources Headquarters Building in Sacramento; Park and Market, UCSD’s downtown campus; Kaiser Irwindale, and 8th + Figueroa, a high-rise development in downtown Los Angeles. Increasingly, Matt is serving as Project Designer as well as a Project Manager. His internal contributions are equally distinguished; he authored RELM’s CAD Standards and leads monthly training sessions on documentation best practices.


Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, Philadelphia University, 2013

‘People like to see designs for what they are--they don’t want to be fooled with faux materials or tricked with illusions.  Designs need to be true to their material and vegetated palette, as well as address functionality adeptly.’
