Mud Office Pty Ltd was founded in 2004.  Based in  Northcote, the studio works primarily in residential landscape design. The office fosters a creative, collaborative approach to achieve the client's brief. 

Each project is tailored to suit the unique qualities of every site, responding to the given aspect, context, use, budget, sustainability and micro-climate. 

The resulting designs operate on a number of levels and anticipate the future maturation of each project.  Recent projects span Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.
