Natural Playgrounds & Outdoor Spaces

Natural Playground in Urban Setting

We are thrilled to collaborate with your team of skilled professionals, whether it’s your forestry department, landscape architects, project managers, or beyond.

Our mission is to understand your requirements and support you in achieving your project goals. We thoroughly believe that no two sites are the same; therefore no two solutions will be identical.

Our team is here to support you every step of the way and includes award winning designers, architects, planners and educators who are united by their belief in the foundational value of immersive nature experiences.

In addition to our standard design services, we have extensive experience operating as Primary Consultants, Sub-Consultants, and Construction Administrators.

We also offer comprehensive training, workshops and engaging keynotes to educate and empower your team. As your dedicated advocate, we are committed to supporting projects that aim to foster equal access to the benefits of immersive natural spaces for your entire community.
