Practice Statement

City Design Co-operative is a firm of Landscape Architects and Urban Designers based in Glasgow, where we have practised for the last 27 years. One of Scotland’s most prominent Landscape Architecture practice’s, we were recently voted No.1 in Urban Realm’s Top Ten Landscape Architects for 2012. We have an extensive range of completed projects and continue to produce inspired and award winning new environments.

City Design work both locally and internationally on wide-ranging project scales. Our experienced team have undertaken projects throughout the UK, Russia, China, North Africa and the Middle East. Our team holds qualifications in both Landscape Architecture and Urban Design and our Directors are Chartered Members of the Landscape Institute.

Our co-operative structure fosters inspired team working, flexibility and experience led design solutions. We believe in making better places through design, but for us the way we do it is as important as what we do. There is no single pre-eminent practice style, rather a richness of approach where each member brings to the design process their own philosophy and originality. We make beautiful places that work for everyone.
