The business of our company is landscape architecture and urban design.
Our objective is to balance landscape philosophies and values with modern design and planning, so as to enhance each project and add value to our clients’ business.
We take our cue from nature itself. Many of our projects are designed within a regional context which is reflected in the special treatment and selection of materials evident in the chosen design solution. The use of indigenous materials within modern design provides a vivid and permanent reminder of our own landscape and creates a sense of belonging for people and buildings.
Our company is frequently invited to become part of multi-disciplinary teams endeavouring to achieve a shared design goal through collaboration. This blending of landscape knowledge and expertise in allied disciplines invariably leads to the adoption of well grounded design principles, ultimately reflected in an harmonious and successful end product.
