RESTORE OUR NATURE
earth-centred design practice
FOUNDATIONAL DESIGN PRINCIPLES
Our pursuit for solutions distracts us from the fundamental issues that perpetuate human separation from nature.
Work with us to imbed Earth-centred design principles into every stage of your project and play a part in restoring our nature.
We work with developers, design teams, and individuals to arrive at holistic and long-term strategies to masterplanning and architectural design.
We support these through education, team facilitation, and leadership culture development, drawing the on strengths and values of each unique team, and challenging the status quo to address design issues from a systemic point of view.
IN SERVICE TO NATURE
IN SERVICE TO YOU
We are experienced in facilitating groups using Co-Design methods. We explore and apply ways forward that give back to the Earth, therefore giving back to ourselves and others in our living system.
Approach the project with a global mind, arrive at local solutions.
We are entangled by the drive to find solutions... but we need to ask better questions.
We run workshops in the local woods and parklands and discover a generative and resilient way of engaging with current issues, problems, inquiries.
For individuals, design professionals, students, land owners, and organisations that want to recalibrate.
These workshops and conversations will help us remember our place as a species dependent on our life support system: Planet Earth.

"...May this decade bring more than just solutions, more than just a future - may it bring words we don't know yet, and temporalities we have not yet inhabited. May we be slower than speed could calculate, and swifter than the pull of the gravity of words can incarcerate. And may we be visited so thoroughly, and met in wild places so overwhelmingly, that we are left undone. Ready for composting. Ready for the impossible. Welcome to the decade of the fugitive."
