WHZED is invested in the belief that the best design emerges by virtue of a fully integrated approach from concept to construction and beyond
Our approach to design is broken into a series of simple solution driven steps which separate the components of design into a KIT OF PARTS, synthesizing all the forces at play to enable life, to create a unique and remarkable landscape design.
WHZED begins exploration with the existing. The rocks, the topography, the vegetation, the water, the built structures, are all reviewed for longevity. Human and biological systems are studied to embrace existing features and capture distant views.
Natural water flow and controlled drainage are engaging, functional and sensory components of any landscape. Whether we are creating a WSUD creek line, a large detention lake or a heritage water fountain these become landmark features to be celebrated within the design. Wherever possible we encourage water touching and integrated experiences
WHZED designs are responsive to the environment and actively contribute to the development of healthy natural and human communities. We design landscapes which balance economic, social and environmental requirements, increase site efficiency, restore habitats and create value through creative and pragmatic solutions in both urban and rural contexts.
CONTEXT AND CULTURE
WHZED design is representative of the stories of people, heritage, culture and place. We explore the understanding of the local vernacular, stories about a site, the people or historical events are essential in binding the relationship between built form and the broader landscape to the community of the designed place.
We use plants to structure space. Working with shape, size, texture, colour and existing or native vegetation, we design to enhance the spatial relationships and uses. Our planting balances human requirements of the public realm with those of biodiversity and in particular forest restoration.
Our designs engage the principles of crime prevention through design by engaging activity and eyes on the street, limiting obstacles to movement and sight resulting in a marked reduction in anti¬social behavior.
The ground plane can be a sensual natural form providing sculptural landforms or a series of steps, ramps and level changes which unfold and change with the journey through the landscape
Lighting provides an 18 hour landscape as it choreographs movement, spaces and interactive elements. Lights create atmosphere, enhancing a sense of safety and encouraging extended use
