Landscape Design

We enjoy working with a wide range of architects, creating landscape settings for contemporary and historical buildings, uncovering in the spaces created between plants and built elements the natural and cultural heritage of each place.  We draw from our experience in the design of high-profile public spaces, projects that require highly technical hard landscaping, site-sensitive planting design and an understanding of how our environment can enhance the quality of our lives.

We start our projects by examining the site’s natural and cultural contexts, its history and the potential for transformation.   Our landscape-led approach to masterplanning is rooted in appreciation for how built and natural landscapes and their inhabitants evolve and adapt to one another over time.
