RICH Landscapes understands your needs in creating QUALITY personalised solutions for your property that adds value to your asset while being an enjoyable place to live, work, play or experience.
Our core principles in skate design are to promote diversity and the evolution of skate environments so that your designed space or facility appeals to a wide variety of user groups and styles while still adhering to international trends.
We engage your key stakeholders and community in a thorough skate design process that delivers the best possible outcome. We connect with the environments user groups and incorporate their ideas and aspirations into the design so they are proud of what they have achieved through their involvement.
Using information gathered from community and stakeholder input we create precise 3D modelled skate environments that can be distributed through plans, 3 dimensional rendered images, online navigable 3D environments and VR integration that allows your project to be understood at a greater level by all of those involved in the design process.
Who we work with
