Care for the land, care for people, go forward.


Our landscape and urban design team takes an innovative approach to spaces - a landscape urbanism approach - operating between and within the disciplines of planning, ecology, landscape architecture and urban design.

We help you create spaces that maximise assets, inspiration and identity through a design-led process for successful place-making. 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 urban and landscape design:

  • 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.
