At Opaysage, landscape architecture and environment are one and the same.
Our landscape architecture firm has extensive expertise in planning, envisioning, designing and carrying out innovative development projects. These projects include eco-friendly yards, municipal projects of all sizes, and shoreline stabilization and rehabilitation. We provide environmental services that promote biodiversity in the heart of cities and urban areas.
Development master plans
Designing smart, sustainable large-scale development
projects that allow decision-makers in the public and private sectors to
improve residents’ quality of life with a long-term vision.
human-scale designs for everything from private yards to public squares,
drawing inspiration from natural principles, such as water filtration in the soil,
plant diversity and air quality improvement, and allowing creativity to be our guide.
Eco-friendly parking lots
Redefining current parking lot designs by using
permeable surfaces and vegetation, keeping the use of asphalt to a minimum,
integrating bioretention zones, and planting trees all around to reduce heat
Sustainable green space management
and redesigning corridors in our neighbourhoods that allow flora to develop and
fauna to move around and grow in safety, helping us relearn to live in harmony
with native species in our day-to-day lives.
Normalizing green roofing by systematically integrating vegetation into buildings’ roofs and walls. Whatever the size of a city, green roofs will help with rainwater management and reduce air conditioning costs while beautifying cityscapes.
Designing projects that integrate areas where
rainwater naturally filters through the soil toward groundwater. These places
not only become areas of choice for many birds, frogs and pollinating insects, but
also reduce the need for municipal rainwater management.
Urban forests and agriculture
Reintegrating and preserving forests in our neighbourhoods : turn vacant lots into vegetable gardens, and view forests as possibilities when preparing development master plans.
