We believe in the transformative power of landscape

 

At CUSP we work with our clients to shape cities for a high quality of life for people. We work at the intersection of the built and natural environment where art meets science. Our focus is the scale, sense, movement, interests and behaviour of people. We seek to enrich the quality of our surrounds and engagement with each other.

Since starting in 2013 Stephen Pate and Daniel Wright have steadily grown CUSP to become one of the leading Landscape Architecture firms in Queensland. This rapid growth has been on the back of a diverse portfolio of urban development, public realm and infrastructure projects.

Stephen & Dan are supported by a studio of Landscape Architects and designers. The team’s experience in all stages of master planning,
design, documentation and administration ensures quality from design conception through to implementation.
