Oxigen is an integrated design practice that feeds off the multi-disciplinary skills of their staff working within a collaborative studio environment. With formal qualifications in landscape architecture, urban design, architecture, urban and regional planning, industrial design and urban horticulture, the team has experience that spans strategic master plans and policy development to the built form.
As a practice, Oxigen values collaboration, encouraging dialogue and the exchange of ideas through the inclusion of clients, local communities and other consultants in the design process. Refusing to be constrained by formulas that work against site-specific design, Oxigen’s approach always draws the principles for design from the site’s history, climate, ecology and intent. Oxigen is also committed to financial, social and environmental sustainability and strives for environmentally healthy and aesthetically appealing design solutions, believing designs that are ecologically effective and comfortable are often those which are also the most attractive.
