Landscape Projects

Phillipsdale High-tech Bird Sanctuary

This project is based on a site with heavy industrial history. Part of the land is filled with slags and there is also pollutant area covered with concrete cap. We carefully transformed it into a bird-friendly sanctuary for seeing its merit in location and natural resources.
