Eliza Costabel

After an upbringing in North and East Africa, the Far East, Europe and the US, Eliza returned to her birth country of Malta 4 years ago and set up The Garden Studio in an effort to combine her love of nature and outdoor spaces, and her background in interior architecture.
A graduate in Interior Architectural Design from California State University, Eliza lived 15 years in Los Angeles starting her professional career in corporate interiors and later setting up her studio dedicated to smaller scale projects in residential and commercial design. This is when she discovered her passion for designing outdoor spaces as she delighted in the pleasure and speed (compared to architecture and interiors) it takes to create a beautiful green oasis
The last 7 years in Kenya further cemented her passion for nature and environmental consciousness and upon moving to Malta she saw the opportunity to set up a professional all-round design/build studio dedicated to outdoor and landscape design “the idea was not to merely plant anything green and place some outdoor furniture, but to come up with clever, innovative design solutions, styling and landscape designs to really maximise any outdoor or interior space”. 
Since its setup in 2015, The Garden Studio has been steadily growing its team of landscape designers, horticulturalists and builders as well as enlarging the scope of its projects and services to encompass the supply of plants and everything that is needed to create a professionally designed green space, from furniture to pots and everything in-between. Eliza and her team are regular contributors to the gardening section on local media and attend all the prominent landscaping seminars and tradeshows to keep abreast with the latest trends in the field.
