campus design.

Campus landscapes need to be robust and legible environments. A successful campus design will provide a range of spaces for staff, students and visitors to inhabit for education and recreation, and an intuitive way of navigating between these spaces. Way-finding can be achieved through the subtle application of landscape treatments to encourage people to choose a hierarchy of navigation options and orientate themselves within the site.

nature play.

Nature play represents a return to playgrounds that comprise of natural elements that nurture childhood development through unstructured play. Provided in tandem with conventional educational environments, nature play can promote mental and physical wellbeing. A successful nature playground will provide calculated risks recognising that these are far healthier for children’s development than a totally de-risked play environment.

This masterplan provides an authentic and engaging design outcome for a school in the geographically isolated town of Kununurra, Western Australia. Despite its preliminary stage, the project exemplifies the role of the landscape architect in collaborative and culturally sensitive partnerships. Recognizing that the school was the future of the community, the design team consulted with major stakeholder groups including the Mirima Dawang Woorlab-gerring Language and Culture Centre and Waringarri Aboriginal Arts centre and, as a result, the final design is rich in its cultural connectivity. The masterplan builds on the existing school curriculum and fosters continued learning of the Miriwoong language through outdoor classrooms, language posts and artworks. The contribution to the wider community is significant, building greater community involvement with St Joseph’s and the continued preservation of the culture and language of the Miriwoong people, of which fewer than 20 fluent speakers remain.

Whiteman Park Conservation & Environment Management Plan

In 2015, the Department of Planning engaged Ecoscape to prepare a Conservation and Environment Management Plan for Whiteman Park.  Whiteman Park is one of the largest recreation and conservation parks in the Perth Metropolitan region covering an area of 4,124 hectares of which 2,200 hectares are protected under the Bush Forever Act, 150 hectares are used for recreation and 200 hectares for horse riding (WAPC 2015). 

The purpose of the Conservation and Environment Management Plan (CEMP) was to provide a strategic plan for the management of the Park’s natural environment.  The plan aims to support current management initiatives and also identify areas of conservation value that require ongoing management to ensure these values are preserved and enhanced and that planned development considers these values.  The objectives of the plan were to:

  • provide an overview of the Park’s existing natural environment
  • provide an overview of the Park’s existing management strategies
  • identify challenges to the environmental management of the park
  • identify the conservation values of the Park and illustrate these on a plan that identifies priority areas for management.

Strategic level recommendations were identified to address the challenges to the environmental management of the Park. Management Zones were identified for the purpose of providing a framework that is practical to follow for on ground staff.  The management recommendations equally aim to support the priorities identified in the Five Year Management Plan.

environmental management

Environmental management aims to ensure that ecosystem services are protected and maintained for future generations, and to ensure ecosystem integrity through the consideration of social, economic, and ecological variables.  Our natural environment maintains important ecological systems and provides habitat for vegetation and fauna species.  Ecoscape aims to sustain a balance between the social, economic and conservation values.
