At Iskalo Landscape Architecture we aim to design aesthetically pleasing and functional outdoor environments that carefully consider the existing site conditions while responding to the client’s specific needs. For graphic communication, the practice produces high quality presentations, plans and technical drawings by making use of computer software such as Autocad, Photoshop and 3D rendering software.
