Achieving functional and beautiful landscaping
Sustainable development is an increasingly important focus of urban renewal. Ramboll's team of landscape architects, landscape designers and urban planners work in an interdisciplinary way to achieve functional and beautiful designs that are sustainable on a social, ecological and economic level.
Social, aesthetic and ecological aspects
Landscape architecture is about designing outdoor and public spaces for a desired outcome, from a social, aesthetic and ecological perspective. A sustainable city is planned with detailed consideration of its environmental impact. We must create environments that encourage people to make lifestyle choices that are inherently sustainable. We must make the city’s ecological footprint as small as possible.
We must ensure that land is used in the most efficient way and, wherever possible, use local, renewable materials. The activities of landscape architects and landscape planners incorporate aspects of land use planning, environmental studies, ecology, analysis and design.
Area of expertise
The scope of the landscaping profession includes planning and construction for residential and mixed-use areas, offices, hospitals, schools and other public spaces as well as major industrial, infrastructure and transport developments. Landscape architects are involved in projects from the earliest stage design studies, throughout the planning process, to finished construction and management plans, with everything from broad landscape concept designs to small-scale landscape detailing. Other elements of our work include restoration and construction of watercourses and wetlands, and contributing to Environmental Impact Assessments.
All of our projects have an environmental focus based on consideration of alternative options and assessment of the environmental impact of the design.
