Planning & Urban Design

Planning & Urban Design

Our approach to planning and urban design practice considers cities and towns as the physical setting that shapes our daily life, the engines of our economy and the stage for cultural expression.

Our goal is to contribute meaningfully to the sustainable growth and quality of urban environments.

Landscape Architecture

Landscape Architecture

As a broad-ranging profession, Landscape Architecture sits at the heart of our goal to shape inspirational environments of enduring quality. We interrogate each site and its context to deliver rich, educational and community driven outcomes that are true to each place and its story.

Landscape Planning

Landscape Planning

We seek outcomes that reconcile competing land uses while protecting environmental and cultural values, including the visual quality of the landscape. Our landscape planning approach is underpinned by robust landscape assessment and analysis techniques that inform applications across a range of scales from strategic through to site level.

Awards

An outstanding collaborative design process has resulted in a series of robust landscapes connecting people to public transport, executed in thoughtful and sophisticated detail. The sheer variety of landscape challenges the designers have met in integrating ferry terminals into eight socially, geologically and topographically different existing landscapes along a flood-prone river is impressive.
