Mastering the artful integration of humans in the environment

 

OUR SERVICES

   

We offer a multitude of design services in order to cover a wide range of projects. We perform all of our design work with an advanced level of efficiency, detail and speed. Here’s an idea of our scope of work:

Landscape Planning

We are concerned with reconciling competing land uses while protecting natural processes and significant cultural and natural resources. While working on large projects, our main target starts from the geomorphology to the different land uses and clients, keeping in mind the sustainability over a period of time.

Landscape Documentation

We prepare all the relevant documents to envision the site we work on in addition to preparing selection of materials, standard construction specifications, detailing and sustainable design practices.

 

urban development schemes and designs

We set out an integrated design vision for the desired future development of urban settings. We translate the broad planning aims and visions to practical urban design action at local level.

Conceptual & Preliminary Designs

The first step of laying hands on any project starts by the concept study. In this phase, we produce ideas and take into account the pros and cons of their implementation. After the concept is formed, the preliminary design bridges the gap between the design concept and the detailed design phase. In this task, the overall design scheme is defined, and schematics, diagrams, and layouts of the project are done to provide an early outline.

Master plan reports

We prepare reports that aid in understanding urban design projects. Starting with an introduction to the site, the reports move on to include site context and analysis which lead to formulating a specific vision. The report later explores the proposed master plan design, and investigates the project’s delivery, phasing and implementation.

Sustainable Plant Selection

A sustainable landscape is more than visual aesthetics; it needs to resist in context over time and preferably benefit its context. Thus, we provide sustainable softscape selections so that the landscape is both aesthetically pleasing and environmentally sound.

Detail Drawing

Successful design implementation comes from attention to details and their proper transmittal to contractors. We produce detail drawings that gives all the dimensions, fabrication methods and types of materials required to shape our designs.

GIS Analysis

For large scale projects, we rely on geographic information system (GIS) analysis, as a major tool that lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends that are happening on the site.

Design visualization and 3D modeling

We offer quality 3D architectural modeling and rendering to help illustrate design concepts, visualize spaces and eventually bring projects to life.

“STUDY NATURE, LOVE NATURE, STAY CLOSE TO NATURE. IT WILL NEVER FAIL YOU.”

  • "A garden path,' write the landscape architects Charles W. Moore, William J. Mitchell, and William Turnbull, 'can become the thread of a plot, connecting moments and incidents into a narrative. The narrative structure might be a simple chain of events with a beginning, middle, and end. It might be embellished with diversions, digressions, and picaresque twists, be accompanied by parallel ways (subplots), or deceptively fork into blind alleys like the alternative scenarios explored in a detective novel."

  • “You can neither lie to a neighborhood park, nor reason with it. 'Artist's conceptions' and persuasive renderings can put pictures of life into proposed neighborhood parks or park malls, and verbal rationalizations can conjure up users who ought to appreciate them, but in real life only diverse surroundings have the practical power of inducing a natural, continuing flow of life and use.”

  • "Good planting design does not follow a formula. At best, it allows you to experiment with nature and through nature to make an original statement. As in all of the arts, the best garden designers take risks. Only by taking risks can you come up with something exciting and original."
