Cities and Places


We design community shaping projects which elevate cities into places people want to live, work and play in.

GroupGSA partners with state and local government, policymakers and private developers to deliver city shaping precincts, architecture and public spaces, through our combined skills in urban design, landscape architecture and architecture.  These projects have an impact at a city scale creating legacy and lasting community value.

Our team is experienced in master planning through to delivery of brownfield and greenfield sites, CBD visioning, strategy, development and feasibility planning. Our amassing portfolio spans urban renewal projects, CBD redevelopments, master planned communities and public realms. This includes parklands and plazas, precincts and town centres, skateparks, sportsfields and playgrounds.

Our clients benefit from a diverse pool of experts with a shared vision and passion for creating vibrant, meaningful destinations that are contextual to their people, place and culture, and will stand the test of time.

GroupGSA has completed major projects in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and various locations in regional Australia.
