Landscape Architecture

Sustainable meeting places on a human scale

Designed landscapes, public spaces, functional streets, playful schoolyards, precious forests, unique parks and beautiful plazas have many different users and are in use around the clock, through all seasons of the year. With a forward-looking strategy for development and management of different types of outdoor environments, it is possible to create values that endure for many years to come. Good design adds new dimensions of value to a place or environment, is appreciated by people and contributes to a strong identity.

Attractive environments where people thrive are shaped through the joint efforts of different competencies in a creative process. A landscape architect focuses on both the whole and all of the small details that have to work and interplay effectively for a place to function. We are active across all phases and have expertise in both regional and urban planning, as well as aesthetic design and engineering.

This calls for a holistic approach in which urban planners, engineers and landscape architects work together in teams alongside other specialists with wide-ranging experience from all facets of urban development. A total solution can include everything from safe and secure living environments, accessible urban green spaces and innovative storm water solutions to art in public places and ecosystem services.

No one knows what tomorrow will bring. It is therefore vital to create environments that take into consideration the future users and special needs of children, site conditions, sustainability aspects, nearby nature and parks and important cultural environments. Dialogue is a natural part of the design process where ideas are anchored and developed in collaboration between different players. Regardless of whether you come from the private or public sector, your needs are our starting point in projects of all sizes and types.
