Artscape's experience is varied and includes a range of research, policy, advisory and project based initiatives across the public and private sectors.


Engineering Faculty Courtyard

Sydney University

Various Campuses, NSW
2011 - Ongoing

ARTSCAPE has been working with Sydney University on a range of projects where the synergies between public art and landscape design are pertinent to achieving unique outcomes for a range of spaces.
ARTSCAPE’s approach to the design of various spaces and elements within the main campus and surrounding campuses centres on gaining an understanding of the faculty / existing spatial uses, research aims, and ongoing requirements.

The lecturers and students are often part of the design process for the purposes of maximising the spatial potential for a variety of users and exploring opportunities for funding.TOP

Copacabana, NSW

The design of the lookout came as an extension to the team’s prior engagement to prepare a master plan for the 5 Lands Walk, to provide a permanent walking trail that connects the five coastal communities of Macmasters Beach, Copacabana, Avoca Beach, North Avoca and Terrigal on the New South Wales Central Coast.
