Castiel Shepp

Senior Associate Landscape Architect
Hansen Partnership

I'm a landscape architect practicing in Melbourne. My design philosophy centres around design that respects and reveals the natural context and history of a site through a process of attentive observation, creative interpretation and innovative design. I have comprehensive experience and a keen interest for projects requiring particular attention to the natural dynamics and biodiversity of the site and the site’s current and future roles and functions within its context.
My background studies in landscape architecture, horticulture, art, urban and environmental planning contribute greatly to my creativity and ability to respond to diverse needs and expectations. In particular, my extension into planning broadened my understanding about the relationships between the practice of landscape architecture and urban planning and how the natural and built environments can symbiotically coexist.
