“Our work is concerned with place. Place offers us the potential to work with what is there: to draw upon, enrich and amplify natural qualities and identity.”
At Wā we have assembled a fantastic team of talented landscape architects and support staff. Our entire team are a creative cohort of passionate and motivated collaborators who collectively embody the wealth of design knowledge, technical skill, and practical experience, that we bring to every project regardless of scale.
