About Akiko Iwata


AKIKO IWATA is our landscape consultant. Born in Tokyo, she traces her interest in Japanese craftsmanship to her grandfather, who created traditional embroidery patterns for kimonos.


Before joining our team, Akiko worked for a large landscape architecture firm in Fort Lauderdale for 12 years. During this period she worked on various international landscape architecture and planning projects, including award-wining designs for a resort and another for an institutional facility for which she was lead designer and project manager.


After studying landscape architecture at the University of Copenhagen, Akiko earned a Masters in Landscape Architecture from Cornell University, graduating with a Faculty Citation in Recognition of Outstanding Achievement and a 1998 American Society of Landscape Architects Honor Award.


At Overseas Partners Realty, Akiko applies her detail-oriented design skills and experience to exclusive residential projects.
