About ACLA Consultants

ACLA (Angelo Carrafa Landscape Architects) is a Melbourne based practice servicing local and state government agencies and private sector clients. The practice forms alliances with project managers, architects, engineers, artists, ecologists and lighting designers to complete projects of all sizes.

Our reputation is based on high levels of client satisfaction, the ability to communicate ideas and remain flexible in our approach. The practice will continue to grow as we seek to establish new clients and landmark design commissions.

Collaboration

ACLA’s success and aspirations are premised on a commitment to engage in a collaborative work environment with each client, and by understanding the specific requirements, constraints and opportunities of each project. Final designed outcomes are based on rigorous site assessment and processes that consider client and community needs paving the way for greater acceptance and ownership of external spaces.

 

 

Acquired Knowledge

As a team of skilled landscape architects and professionals, we are constantly researching new technologies, materials and design attitudes. This enables the practice to make informed decisions, which ultimately lead to sustainable, innovative and practical design solutions.

 

 

Service Excellence

Our service is based on a high level of commitment to the environment, our clients and the profession. Each project is nurtured with dedication, flexibility, professionalism and a desire to create unique external spaces based on principles of Ecological Sustainable Development.

We establish a respectful and sound-working environment with clients focusing on decision-making processes by mutual agreement. Our recognition is also reflected in our long-standing and ever increasing client base.

The practice is a member of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) and Play Australia.
