Complete Communities

All of our work is rooted in the principle of creating ‘complete’ communities - communities where streetscapes, parks, open spaces and other components of the public realm are integrated with built form and land use to create diverse, vibrant, functional and sustainable urban places for people to live, work and thrive.

Environmental Sustainability

Our firm is a world leader in the planning and design of sustainable landscapes.  Our work encompasses everything from the expansion of public policy to meet today’s environmental challenges to the design of site-specific solutions to manage stormwater runoff, mitigate flooding, enhance the urban forest, moderate urban heat island effect, restore degraded landscapes and improve resilience in the face of climate change.

Memorable Places

Our mission is to create memorable places - places that express a unique character and narrative that is founded on the natural, cultural and built heritage and history of the community.  Every project is unique.  Every project is seen as an opportunity to enrich the public realm and enhance user experience.

Integrated Natural Systems

The firm excels in achieving a synergistic relationship between natural heritage and urban development. We work with public and private stakeholders to establish a sustainable balance between these often-competing interests.
