People

Our teams across Australia, China and South East Asia are hand-picked, carefully curated with industry leaders, up and comers, quiet achievers and award-winning strategists and creators.

Celebrating the individuality of our people, we form successful and thriving environments.

And whilst our teams are made up of planners, landscape architects, urban designers, and engagement specialists, they are people and place users too. As such we don’t separate ourselves from this. We embrace it, to inform the delivery of true places for people, and create better futures as a result.
