DESIGNER PROFILE: Alex Basler
Landscape & Pool Designer
Alex Basler, Landscape & Pool Designer for Unique Companies, brings with him a diverse background of 10+ years of experience and understanding in spatial design and planning. Alex graduated from the University of Arizona College of Architecture, Planning, & Landscape Architecture in 2017, the same year that he founded his Tucson-based design firm, Studio Archonomous, that he still operates today. In 2020, Alex completed 8 years with the USAR as a Paralegal Specialist and is now ex-military.
Originally born and raised in Iowa, Alex has always had an affinity for the outdoor environment. Once he moved to Arizona in 2008, the unique beauty of the Sonoran Desert captivated him. Before working with Unique Companies, Alex worked as a product designer for several years, and also as an architectural designer & project manager in the field of architecture. Projects that he worked on range from high end residential design to luxury resorts for world-class clients in Mexico and South America. He maintains a natural interest in technology, sustainability, and systems thinking, especially when applied to landscape design, and would be thrilled to talk to you about xeriscaping, permaculture, and biophilic design.
Also an avid hiker, swimmer, and cyclist, Alex believes in the mental and physical benefits of having access to an outdoor environment that you love. When Alex is not working with clients to design a dream environment of their own, you can likely find him enjoying the outdoor air, writing, cooking, or hacking away on design projects of other disciplines.
