We like what we do. We get real satisfaction from being able to create better environments for people to live, work, learn and play in. We know we can only do that with practical designs that will stand the tests of time and use. We enjoy being creative and innovative but always for a reason: to satisfy the objectives of our clients and the needs of the end users. These are the five themes that guide the way we work:
We will always drive ourselves to make the best use of the spaces we work with and to meet users’ needs in fresh ways.
We take pride in producing designs that will work in the real world. Our long experience of taking schemes to completion on site means we can solve complex design problems on time and to budget.
Our ability to communicate: both understanding others’ needs and conveying our ideas well, is an important ingredient in our success. From liaising with clients, design teams and planners, to running consultation discussions with schoolchildren, effective communication is central to our projects.
We want to leave a legacy by creating sustainable designs for future generations to enjoy as well as for the present. It is a key influence in our design approach: it guides our choices of materials and plants and we look for the long term in all we do.
We create positive and open working relationships with our clients and the project teams we are part of, and we value the members of our own team and help them to develop to their full potential.
A number of our clients have had good things to say about our work as a result of our approach.
“Sandringham Primary School has worked with Wynne-Williams on two large projects. The school has re-designed four outdoor environments. Each of the four environments was designed in consultation with Wynne-Williams. The school had a clear vision of what we wanted. However, Wynne-Williams were able to refine, revisit and ultimately present a plan that far exceeded our original vision for the areas. The consultation process was thorough. It enabled all parties to have a clear understanding of expectations.
During the project there were moments that original design features could have been lost due to planners, etc. Wynne-Williams were always able to work out the problems and re-present. They made the process of being a client a pleasure and always pushed for the highest standards and the realisation of the original vision. Sandringham has begun consultation with Wynne-Williams about another outdoor environment. They are landscape architects who understand about education environments and for us they lifted the whole feel of our outdoor play. I would recommend Wynne-Williams without hesitation.” – Sandringham Primary School
“Wynne-Williams Associates have worked on a number of parks and open spaces schemes for me in recent years at Haringey Council. From consultation through to practical completion I have always been impressed by the conscientious service that they provide and their willingness to strive for excellent client satisfaction. WWA have a good understanding of the issues facing parks management teams in challenging financial times and this is reflected in their soft landscape schemes with well-researched plant selection and appropriate and imaginative design. WWA’s public open space design work is creative yet practical and meets the client brief to provide appropriate spaces that can be enjoyed by a wide range of user groups.” – LB Haringey
“We have no hesitation in recommending WWA arboricultural, landscape assessment and landscape design services to our clients who wish to promote land for new development or achieve improved asset value through the planning system. From their clear understanding of project briefs, realistic approach to assessing site opportunities and constraints, professional and high quality advice and reporting, WWA offer a competitive, friendly, team orientated and responsive service which greatly contributes to project objectives being met”. – James Lawson, Director Lawson Planning Partnership
