At the heart of our studio is a group of professionals and friends who have practised together for over thirty-six years, in twenty-five different countries.  The diversity of our group brings a wide range of creative energy and experience to our practice of design and landscape architecture.  Our work has fortunately never had a recognizable style.  Looking at the variety of constructed projects over the last number of years, it is apparent that the design of each project is based on a unique set of program elements unique to that specific project, culture and environmental setting.  Whether it is a resort in Bali, a master-planned community in Egypt, or a complex mixed-use development in Mexico, each project is unique and special.  We have developed a process for the design of our projects, which ensures that the initial creative ideas and images are actually realized in the final construction of the project.  We have made it a priority to provide our clients with fresh ideas and approaches to their projects, backed up by the latest technology available for our work.  We continue to expand our resources and experience through travel, adventure, photography, art and our innate curiosity of the world around us.

As the Design Studio of Michael McKay we have a unique opportunity to make an impact on the environment, with the spaces and places we plan and design.  We firmly believe we have a responsibility to design our projects with an environmental awareness so that our projects respect natural systems and environments, provide benefit to the environment through proper selection of materials and design, and as we like to say ‘sit lightly upon the ground’.
