Over the past 50 years, Gillespies have built a reputation for consistently delivering inspirational landscapes that respond to the needs and aspirations of the clients and communities they serve. Our aim is to make a strong contribution to a sustainable future, and to acknowledge the physical and cultural contexts within which each project resides.
Our prestige is rooted in our range of specialist landscape skills and approach underpinned by our core philosophy: that exceptional design stems from a deep understanding and appreciation of place. The inception of each project is marked by identifying the genius loci of its site, enabling us to produce unique responses to local place-making and to forge distinctive, stimulating and resilient places that enrich people’s lives and enable them to live, work, play, and find respite.
We bring a high level of professional expertise, commitment, technical ability and enthusiasm to every project. Our diverse portfolio illustrates our ability to work across a range of scales and typologies. We are particularly skilled in delivering large scale landscape design projects, public realm designs, public realm strategies, greenspace, parks and open space projects, landscape masterplanning and feasibility studies.
Our design process is collaborative and inclusive, and our accumulative experience ensures an informed and thoughtfully developed approach that has and continues to enable us to deliver some of the most complex and challenging schemes within our profession.
