As our team looks to expand our national presence, we are excited to announce the opening of Hoerr Schaudt’s new Kansas City office. We are also pleased to announce that Kansas City-based landscape designer, Aaron Ross, will be joining Rob Gray, Principal, in leading our new office.

Leading the Kansas City office is Principal, Rob Gray, a landscape architect and urban planner with more than 20 years of experience in the field. Rob has been a member of the Hoerr Schaudt team for nearly 10 years and has worked on a wide variety of projects ranging from streetscapes, campus and community planning, healthcare environments, public parks, botanical and zoological gardens, resorts and theme parks. Rob holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in landscape architecture from Louisiana State University and the Harvard Graduate School of Design, respectively.


Joining Rob in the Kansas City office is Associate Principal Aaron Ross. Aaron has more than ten years of experience leading projects ranging from city and regional planning to site development projects and green infrastructure solutions. He was previously a Principal at BNIM in Kansas City, where he led the firm’s landscape architecture and planning practice. Aaron holds a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from Kansas State University.

“I can think of no better team to lead our growth into Kansas City than Rob Gray and Aaron Ross,” said Doug Hoerr, Founder and Senior Principal at Hoerr Schaudt. “Rob and Aaron are both exceptional designers that will serve as thought leaders across the firm and promote growth of our practice within the region and around the country.”

Our Kansas City office is currently leading the development of projects including the 7-acre garden roof for the redevelopment of the Houston Post Office, a master plan for the 54-acre Blessed Stanley Rother Shrine in Oklahoma City, and an urban beautification plan for the communities surrounding the Iowa Great Lakes in northwest Iowa.
