It’s coming up to the 10 year anniversary of our video ‘I want to be a Landscape Architect’, created for the Landscape Institute. It’s been a great time for the profession with the increased awareness of outdoor space in our everyday lives, and the importance of sustainable design which delivers on climate change targets.
Rbmp is an innovative and award-winning practice with locations in Manchester and London, offering quality design solutions and services to clients across the UK.
Formed in 2009, we work with architects, landscape architects, planning consultants, and developers to help realise potential. With a background in landscape architecture we’re able to quickly assimilate architectural and environmental ideas and translate them in a clear and succinct way to reveal potential and possibilities. We work collaboratively with our clients to understand the concepts and principles behind ideas.
We’ve helped to design and deliver a range of projects from large scale urban public realm schemes through to small single home-owner residential projects. These often include complex programmes, with tight budgets and long lists of constraints with numerous stakeholders. We are a creative and highly skilled team dedicated to providing an excellent level of service and outstanding results for all of our clients.
Our aim is to deliver high quality work, helping clients realise concepts and secure planning consent.
