Recent Project: Rio Tinto Naturescape (Stage 2)


As a Landscape Architect, I believe I am a catalyst in the creation of multi-dimensional and visionary spaces that exceed the dreams of my clients and the wider community. I believe, as designers, it is our job to create dynamic, inspiring and transformative human spaces with meaning and social relevance. I have a strong belief in quality and socially sustainable site and community driven design solutions, something my long-standing creative association with Kings Park demonstrates with successes that include the Botanic Terraces, State Reception Centre, Rio Tinto Naturescape and Place of Reflection projects. My 20 year continuous association with Kings Park demonstrates well my collaborative approach and dedication to creating transformative projects of great social relevance.


As a director, project manager and designer, with 31 years of experience as a landscape architect, David has multiple awards and published projects to his name. With management experience gained in the public and private sectors, David’s additional strengths include project programming and procurement, and a comprehensive knowledge of construction across many disciplines.
