A multidisciplinary approach

Spackman Mossop Michaels is an award winning international office for urban strategy and landscape architecture. Our mission is to create places that people love to use every day. We believe that as designers of public space, we have a responsibility to transform the mundane into an extraordinary and meaningful experience.

Culture & values

Our approach to design is driven by a deep understanding of how the natural, social and cultural environments contribute to the design of the built environment as well as the technical realities of a project. We are focused on finding creative solutions that enrich the urban environment.

Our approach is both pragmatic and visionary in its search for new multi-functional and responsive urban systems. As we continue to work in the public realm, it is increasingly important to us that our work is both effective socially, and accessible to diverse communities.

Skills & capabilities

Our practices in Sydney and New Orleans comprise teams of landscape architects, urban designers, architects, and planners committed to delivering high-quality outcomes. We take a multi-disciplinary approach to design and urbanism and the practice has extensive experience in small and large-scale master planning and design of multi-functional urban infrastructure.
