What we do

We design and realize landscape projects in both private and public spaces, ranging from art-based landscape installations, gardens, parks and residential sites to schoolyards, urban plazas, corporate sites and regional concepts. Our aim is to create functionally sound and beautiful landscapes with a spirited vision. We strive to discover and understand the stories and potentials of places in order to revive, continue or improve their unique quality. We are inspired by spaces of different scale and character as well as the diverse requirements of our clients, whose ideas, dreams and interests are central to our work. For they make the space available, in wich our ideas and design concepts help shape the future of our living environment.
Our distinct passion for aesthetic and sensual quality unfolds in atmospheric landscapes, in which design and materials are directly perceptible to the senses of the people they surround. In this sense, we are designers of perception and experience.

Our scope of work

Our core activity is the design of private and public gardens, parks, plazas and landscapes. The scope of work may vary depending on the project. Competencies and responsibilities are adjusted to the specific requirements of a project and extended by collaborating partners if necessary. Given the interdisciplinary character of landscape design, our work also comprises competition entries in cooperation with creative studios and architectural offices, design consulting services for developers and governmental authorities, lectures and guest conferences at universities and other institutions, art and landscape projects with schools and disability services, landscape documentation and photography. Our expertise in planning processes covers the following services:

Basic Concept Development: illustration and explanation of a basic design approach including cost estimate
Preliminary Design: development, representation and explanation of the basic solution
Final Design: elaboration and representation of the final solution
Building Permission Application: drawing up of documents for approval by authorities
Implementation Planning: drawing up of detailed construction drawings and planting plans
Cost Calculation: calculation of costs on the basis of quantity surveys and estimation of manufacturing costs
Tendering: preparation of tender documents, tendering and bid evaluation
