‘Mei Loci’ meaning ‘my place’ in Latin is an expression of the vision that sits at the core of our business – to create places that people love, places they can call their own. Through landscape architecture, we reinvigorate a conversation between land and community, regenerating the essence of what was once before, reviving spaces that inspire common experience and a shared identity.

Creating landscapes that have this kind of power is a collaborative process, one that begins and ends with people. That’s why we take a community-led, co-design approach to all our projects – designing with people, for people.


Research and analysis underpin all aspects of our work, forming an intrinsic understanding of the landscape, culture and heritage of each site. From geology, botany and soil-science to arts, heritage and culture, we tell stories of people and cultures through the landscape. We are involved in every aspect of a project – from community engagement, creative design through to master planning, landscape and visual impact assessments and detailed design for all aspects of the built environment.

Our work follows a strong philosophy of environmental sustainability, interwoven with a vibrant dialogue with clients, communities, artists, and other professionals, it is underpinned by our commitment to design beautiful, quality, rich landscape and environments that engage with the people they are intended for.
