Award-winning Landscape Architect Lloyd Atherfold takes a holistic approach to his design, creating landscapes that enhance natural ecosystems and communicate a sense of place.
Passionate about achieving outcomes that cater for a diverse society, Lloyd thrives on the challenge of exploring possibilities that can facilitate safer public spaces and thriving communities.
Lloyd’s three decades of working in the landscape architecture and design field have seen him lead and manage significant projects in public open space and streetscapes, health environments, housing developments, educational facilities, environmental rehabilitation and commercial design.
He is most interested in design that utilises low impact, sustainable methods, strengthens social capital, and ensures culturally relevant and environmentally friendly solutions. This approach is infused throughout Lloyd’s projects, such as Kāinga Ora and Ngaa Puna Rerenga Wai housing developments where landscape design is tailored to individual site and social needs; Everil Orr Retirement Village, Stage Three; and the Mason Clinic mental health care facility.
