At its best landscape architecture is an art form, which also happens to solve social, environmental, economic and technical problems. We try at all times to approach our work in this way. Competition between cities is driving an urban renaissance which is leading to innovation and investment in public realm. The countryside is changing too, as agricultural technique responds to policy and economic pressure. The way we use landscapes is evolving as social patterns shift.



We search for scenarios that accommodate increasingly complex living patterns, and in doing so we exploit constraints to achieve technically successful outcomes. Working in partnership with planning and development consultants we innovate in response to changing technology and to our clients’ environmental needs. Our contribution to the future of our physical and cultural environment could be considered as an applied art which is expressed through qualities such as form, material, evolution and continuity.
