Founded in 1998, Inspiring Place continues to build our reputation in place-making – integrating our skills across landscape architecture, tourism, recreation and environmental management.
We have worked in some of the world’s most precious places, and across a range of other landscapes and urban environments that have important natural, social and heritage values to their local communities and their visitors.
We make fresh connections and generate new solutions, grounded in our depth of experience and breadth of place-making skills and the insights gained through engagement with stakeholders and the community. We value our relationships, so you know you are working with real people who listen, are straight-talking, open to new thinking and feel as strongly about your place as you.
Our team will balance a local focus on your place with a global perspective of what works elsewhere. Working together with you, we’ll create a place where people want to live or visit, where people want to linger and return and where their experiences are enhanced.
How do you know when a place works?
The finely-tuned logistics go unnoticed and the place feels welcoming, enlivening and, dare we say, inspiring. The difference between a space and a place is that it is attuned to the local conditions and people enjoy being there.
We’ve finished over 500 projects that demonstrate the breadth of skills and the flexibility of our team and associates.
We have all the landscape architecture skills your project needs – the art and the science that are the core of our profession.
We adopt and advocate for best practice environmental thinking such as water sensitive urban design, healthy by design and creating pedestrian friendly streets.
Our focus is based on realising the competitive advantage of the destination, across a seamless experience cycle.
When people are physically active they are healthier, happier and more socially active. It allows people of all ages to participate in activities that contribute to the growth of body, mind and spirit.
