We start on any project by listening: what does the client wants, what the project needs, how we can thoughtfully and creatively answer the brief regardless of the project scale or budget.

We offer a full range of landscape services and expertise at all designs stages, from conception to implementation. We undertake site appraisal and feasibility studies, concept design development and masterplans, detailed design and specifications, for both hard and soft landscape design, maintenance and management plans, tendering, contract administration and site supervision.

Avra was a delight to work with. She maintains the utmost professionalism at all times and goes that extra mile to help whenever and wherever she can. She is proactive and an incredibly hard worker. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

I have been impressed with the team at Space + Place Design, and in particular with the way that Avra Ploumi-Archer has engaged sensitively with all parties, skilfully explaining complex issues and constraints of the site with enormous amounts of patience, and in language suitable for the range of different audiences.  The Feasibility Study Report clearly sets out the different design options and potential operating models.  It concludes with an action plan that provides structure for all parties moving forwards.

Throughout this project Avra has demonstrated extensive knowledge of project delivery models, urban landscapes, design and community engagement.  The professionalism and good humour of Avra and her team have made them a joy to work with.
