As a talented Senior Landscape Architect, Rohit has an appreciation for the liveability of cities and how Landscape Architecture can influence the spaces within them. Through creating landscape and urban master plan strategies and concepts, Rohit has acquired a wealth of knowledge and experience by focusing on people in the public domain and their relationship with their landscape.
Ro has been involved in award winning public infrastructure projects including the Woolgoolga to Glenugie Pacific Highway Upgrade along the New South Wales Northern Coast, as well as being involved in a number of local and regional master planning projects, streetscape and town centre masterplans, and numerous mixed-use and public domain projects.
Ro’s inspiration comes from his interpretation of the design ethos of Japanese designers and architects, the work of James Corner and his ability to layer a design and its associated landscape processes, and the work of creative directors in fashion and film such as Virgil Abloh. His design philosophy revolves around landscape and people. The affect beautiful landscapes can have on the mental and physical health of people is something which provides him with the drive to continually aim for the ‘perfect’ design. Ro defines his perfect design as something which achieves social benefit to the community, which has a beautiful aesthetic quality, and which provides an ecological benefit to the local flora and fauna of the site and its context.
Ro understands and reiterates the ever-present pressures of climate change and rising population densities in cities and is focused on the landscape architect’s role in creating positive, but also beautiful change, as our cities learn to adapt.
