Senior Landscape Architect

Location: Perth WA 

We design spaces places.

PLACE = space + purpose + identity

The land we inhabit and work on is indigenous land. Indigenous communities have resided on the Australian continent for over 65,000 years, while non-indigenous populations have been present for only 230 years. It is our commitment to recognise this reality and explore its implications for our connection to the land, its original inhabitants, and the work we undertake. We acknowledge that there is much progress to be made on this journey.
