Earthwork Landscape Architects is a practice based in Christchurch, New Zealand with a strong commitment to its client’s needs and the landscape, a clear philosophy and a history of top quality project delivery. The practice grew out of a rural location where it expanded its expertise in site planning and public design to a broad range of professional engagement. These original strengths in logical, well planned design and a commitment to the natural environment have been retained in our work.
The practice’s beginnings in rural and public work and the associated emphasis on “whole of site” solutions has developed into a broader range of applications. This is based on a clear understanding of both the site and the design brief and applies rigorous logic in creating and collaborating on a comprehensive site solution. The practice retains close architectural connections and often is employed before an architect. These skills are also used in association with engineering, ecology, urban design and planning.
