An ‘Oracle’ is a `wise-advisor’. True to the genesis of its name, Oracles constitutes outstanding professionals associated with the field of landscape architecture, geared towards providing site planning, landscape design and construction administration services. Following closely the dictionary definition, we as advisors to our clients believe in offering work of remarkable quality and value our relationship nurtured on mutual trust.

At Oracles, we view landscape design as an extension of nature and its patterns, pulled creatively into arenas for human activity in keeping with the core values of the site, its setting and the proposed usage. In that sense, our work strives to integrate the physical, cultural and spiritual flow of thoughts and processes associated with open spaces and built form.

Straddling between the scales of the garden, the complex and the region, our firm believes in offering holistic perspective on planning, design and management of landscape.

Each site bears testimony to the physical, biological and cultural history as layers that define its identity, waiting to be discerned. Our strongest concern lies in evolving a unique design vocabulary that is highly responsive to the context. The landscapes that we create on occasion merge seamlessly in their urban or natural surrounds, while at other times stand out as landmarks offering visual delight. High standards of functional appropriateness form an obvious backbone to the concepts.

We firmly uphold that design is more than purely a sum of its parts and constantly endeavor to rise above mediocrity by engaging rigorously within the studio; while at the same time maintaining a strong connect with the academic realm.
