Landscape Design

Ecological design is working with the land, with geology, climate, flora and fauna, but also – not the least – with people and processes, thus working towards a sustainable way of landscaping. Therefore, every design must be a unique response to place. The ecological strategy starts to formulate when the design starts. It is the physical spine of the design, but also a concept that works with the place, with its identity and a complex system where plants interact, provide habitats and capture the character of the land.

Wildscape projects focuses on planting design that aims to understand natural processes, work with them, allow space and time for these to evolve and colonize whilst adapting to live with, explore and engage with nature. Whether the design dictates formality or simplicity, the ecological frame is to provide space for resiliency, interact with the often irregular patterns of nature and create a potential for diversity.

Plant Ecologies

A design is always the result of exploration, testing of concepts and options. Understanding the character and imagining the physical outcome is often not straightforward. Landscape design is a collaborative process, when designers and client explore, solve problems and respond to specific requirements together. A clear understanding is vital for a satisfactory result, visualising architectural ideas is therefore the essential part of the design process.

Visualisation however can take various forms from traditional to innovative. For Wildscape Projects it does not only mean plans and sections – although these often prove to be very useful – but photomontages, 3D models – physical or software generated -, CGIs or even videos. It should not be forgotten that these not only best present the ideas, but provide ground for experimenting and a deeper understanding.

Construction

The detailing and realisation  is probably the most exciting, challenging and rewarding part of a project. The design concept comes alive through details and this is decisive in the perception of the finished landscape. As a result of careful, high quality detailing, appropriate material choices and construction methods the user should be able to understand the landscape and nature better, see the grain of landscape through a different eye, experience textures, colours and smells in a new way. Wildscape Projects aims to give something of its own perceptions but also opens the way towards new narratives.

Looking after this process requires expertise and collaboration. Every project is unique, achieving the design intent happens only through a deep project understanding, often rigourous administration and project management. Wildscape projects offers liasing with contractors, managing the tender process and overseeing the construction to the final handover, or even monitoring following completion.
