As a landscape architectural and urban design practice, Wā endeavours to explore the ways in which cultural, historical and natural processes interact to shape and inform our environment. Our primary focus is the public domain within an urban context, however, we participate in, and contribute to, a wide range of projects of varying scale, complexity and ownership.

In much of this work we recognise the value and importance of meaningful collaborations: the collaborative process is one that we enjoy and foster at every opportunity. We think that an interdisciplinary approach delivers the most robust and rich response to complex urban landscape issues.

The outcomes in both built and speculative work have shown the diverse formal landscape architectural expressions that can be achieved through the integration of ecological systems and urban design. They have generated performative sustainability benefits and provided rich and complex narratives that reveal a story about the site.
