Landscape Architecture

We all have access to public spaces, yet it begs the question: are these areas safe and universally accessible, do they foster community connection, are they resilient to temporary flood occurrences, are they cost-effective, and easy to maintain, and do they serve as habitats for indigenous flora and fauna to flourish?

Our committed team of landscape architects and designers at Xyst are devoted to actively listening and comprehending your needs, striving to creatively enhance public spaces for the better. We succeed in designing spaces and experiences that are enjoyable and have a positive impact on physical and mental health of individuals and communities while fostering environmental improvement.

Our scope of work encompasses a wide spectrum, ranging from large-scale master planning, to concept and detailed design plans to more intimate design interventions such as such as detailing interpretive signage or art installations.

At Xyst, we adopt a whole-of-life approach to design from initial conception, through planning, engagement, design and implementation through to decommissioning or repurposing. We stand alongside you at every phase of the process.
