"Water is the driving force of all Nature" - Leonardo da Vinci

At concept stage, Waterforms' creative skills and professional experience combine in response to a client's request to develop a fundamental water feature idea into a fully developed, functional and code compliant water display. Our experience encompasses a broad range of commercial, government and residential projects from interactive waterplay parks, fountains, swimming pools and spas to landscape integrated artworks and sculptural pieces.

For water displays integrated within a new landscape design, masterplan, civic development or refurbishment, Waterforms will develop all landscape concepts associated with water themed spaces. The company's design work is supported by accurately costed hydraulic engineering and electrical control design to produce the innovative water choreography and lighting effects that enable Waterforms to bring water to life. 

Waterforms' design skills have contributed significantly to many of our clients winning design awards for landscape design, commercial and urban design as well as residential building projects and developments.
