Landscape Masterplanning

Landscape masterplanning is based upon a thorough understanding of place, and it is intended to provide a structured approach to creating a clear and consistent framework for development.

Large scale landscape masterplanning at a strategic scale influences decisions on long term land use, informed by a comprehensive review of the landscape.

We take a holistic approach to synthesizing environmental sustainability alongside good placemaking, and apply the following key principles as part of our process:

  • Recognising the importance of identifying, recording, protecting and enhancing the existing natural assets, as a starting point for the design
  • Creating a place that acknowledges the wider landscape and ecological context
  • Optimises multifunctionality
  • Turns constraints into opportunities
  • Recognises the importance of creating human scale spaces

We take a collaborative approach to design.

“You made our vision stronger and supported and enhanced our values for this project. The design quality was really inspiring – we are really proud of the landscape plan you worked on, it lays a really strong foundation to enhance the quality of life for the local community (and wildlife) for generations. You really got our heritage of the future brief and built something inspiring.”
