Space + Place Design is a landscape architectural practice, registered with the Landscape Institute.

Working across the UK, we work closely with our clients to produce and deliver site-sensitive and environmentally responsible design proposals.

Our Mission

Landscape can transform the places in which we work, live, heal, learn and play. A landscape architect through their design can help connect people to their environment, support wildlife and enhance local ecosystems. We have a passion for projects that make an impact in their locality. We love working on education projects that will bring a real change in the student and teacher’s school lives, on community projects that will enhance the quality of life and will make a difference in people’s everyday lives.

Space + Place Design provides a range of professional landscape architecture services, specialising in landscape design across most sectors with over 20 years’ experience in dealing with clients and building relationships to support them to deliver their mission. We combine our construction and project management expertise with design flair to provide a complete landscape design service, from conception to detailing, through planning and tendering, to construction and site supervision.

Our aim is to add value to your project; to create beautiful places that respect the environment, embracing form and function, patterns and textures, to deliver a landscape that subtly maximises its potential. We cherish opportunities to collaborate with our clients, architects, engineers, stakeholders and communities in creating places that embrace their social and environmental responsibility.
