sym. studio is a landscape architecture and place making practice located in Sydney’s north. An agile team of senior designers with expertise in community wellness + design, offering a fresh alternative to traditional companies. Built on five key foundations – innovation, integrity, accountability excellence & passion, we reflect a contemporary voice for landscape architecture.
We see each project as an opportunity to form partnerships, push the bounds of possibility, steer preconceived ideas, build trust and contribute to a value based process and user experience. Every project is unique, we focus on revealing the ‘essence of place’ that authentic quality, something beautiful but perhaps previously unseen.
Our project procedures are honed after many years experience in multinational companies both here in Australia and in the United States implementing international industry standards and processes. In-house design and documentation teams represent highly competent professionals who do things right the first time; proactively co-ordinating with external consultants; consistently meeting expedited work programs; accessible after hours with outputs reflecting close director-level involvement.
sym. studio works within the full range of scales from urban mixed use master plans to intimate garden spaces; public places of prospect to private spaces for refuge. We especially enjoy addressing the leftover spaces between buildings, applying the principles of landscape urbanism to build cities that prioritise open space and promote social interaction. We like to explore new ideas and processes, forge new relationships and ultimately create places of enduring quality, where a sense of stewardship and belonging permeates deep into the local community.
