landscape architecture & Urban Design

how we can help


design-led outcomes

We create spaces and places to suit your needs.

We work across both the public and private sectors, taking a multi-faceted approach to projects to ensure we add real value when it comes to innovative design.

Here’s how we can help you with landscape architecture and urban design-related decisions:

  • Landscape and urban designs – Design-led outcomes for successful place-making

  • Landscape and visual effects assessments (VA) – Detailing the effects of development on the visual character of the landscape

  • Living Roof (Green Roof) and Green Walls – Design and advice of the appropriate living roof and wall designs and construction - with two leading living roof consultants within the team who are writing NZs first Living Roof and Wall Guide

  • Visioning future layouts of a site, feasibility and site analysis – Initial advice on development opportunities as we operate between and within the disciplines of planning, ecology, landscape architecture and urban design

  • Stakeholder and government agency consultations – Stakeholder, government agency, community engagement consultation

  • Public space design – By improving community identity through place-making in spaces where people come together

  • Landscape architecture design advice – From small scale residential advice to parks

  • Environmental landscape strategies – We provide a holistic plan for development considering social, economic and environmental issues for site drivers, consultation, conservation, education, cultural and aesthetic aims

August 2022 marked a significant step in the evolution of 4Sight as we became part of SLR, a global leader in environmental and advisory solutions.  We can now offer our clients an even greater range of specialist technical services, which you can view here.

The feasibility study was much anticipated by the community, and has been received with excitement and support for the project progressing to the next phase. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with the team again in the future
