Landscape architecture is becoming more respected by clients and the public. As a result, demand for high quality public space is growing.
Yet buildings and public space are often viewed separately, and therefore a sense of place is not always successfully achieved.
By approaching building and landscape design holistically, the design team can ensure we have an inspiring, intelligent public realm.
