SCENIC employ a studio approach. We believe that team working and a focus on innovation and design quality are the hallmarks of a successful landscape practice. Our engagement with projects comes with a firm-wide commitment to provide an experienced professional service delivering quality landscape planning, design and project realisation.

Our experience of working towards multi-dimensional, integrated and sustainable landscapes has highlighted the critical benefits of working with complementary skills and disciplines to push forward the integration of ideas. We work closely with the client, architects, engineers, scientists and artists to generate new approaches and concepts specific to each project. We enjoy building these relationships and in so doing we add value to the overall design. This fosters trust and dependable outputs in terms of quality, programme and cost, and establishes positive relationships with clients, communities and fellow design professionals.

Our designs are firmly rooted in the site and its context. We undertake a thorough and systematic appraisal of each and every design issue. We do this by assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the site, examining the urban / landscape context in detail and hypothesizing on the potential of every facet and element of our new design. Our aim is to produce locally distinctive solutions by being rigorous and informed, and by using our creative intelligence to produce integrated and sustainable design solutions.
