Tina Zheng

Graduate Landscape Architect

As a landscape architect, I provide different types of plans according to the client’s requirements, the characteristics of the site, and make suggestions for future development. In social consultation, I use my graphic skills to help the public understand what kind of place they will have and the future development of the site. I also participate in other related designs, such as the signages of the wayfinding system.

I also assist our team with preparing various documents, presenting data in reports and the situation of the site in a more intuitive way. I work on transforming text into more readable and visual forms through typography and mapping, and assist clients in developing their own document style.

Xyst in action

The Ohau Road Reserve is a large green space in a residential area. It lies partly along Ohau Road with a newly built walkway, and partly deep in the centre of the residential area. The local council intends to build a children’s playground and make rational use of the surrounding areas. Considering the safety of the playground, the accessibility and the use of the entire venue, I prepared two options, and selected one of them to be further modified at the request of the client. After the reserve is completed, it will become one of the main leisure and entertainment places for local residents, and at the same time, it will strengthen local wayfinding.
