For over 60 years we’ve been designing exceptional settings across the globe, driven by the belief that by designing intelligently with nature we can make a positive difference to the greater whole. We value highly our living legacy – it’s one of the pillars of our practice – and that means that we’re always looking for purposeful, like-minded people to join us.


We design places from small community parks to entire cities, recently completed projects include Television Centre, the Google HQ’s rooftop garden, several Elizabeth Line stations in London, Mayfield Park in Manchester, Bradford City Park and Piece Hall in Halifax. We apply that human touch with intelligence and foresight, protecting and harnessing nature’s networks to protect earth’s equilibrium. The resulting places are personal. They’re the product of nature and people in balance, the setting for human stories to unfold.


We are an agile, independently minded team, working in a creative and sociable studio atmosphere from five cities – London, Oxford, Manchester, Leeds and Abu Dhabi.
