Our Team


 

As qualified landscape architects and designers we have an established skillset and knowledge - but our strength comes from our diversity of experience. We've all had a number of different journeys that have lead us to this company. Beyond landscape architects we are parents, makers, writers, teachers, students, explorers, conservationists, builders, and it is this that helps drive our unique approach to design. 

Above all else, we are a team. We collaborate on all projects, and frequently spend time throwing ideas at each other and working together to discover the best design outcomes regardless of the size of the project. We want what you want - well designed spaces that can be lived in, played with - spaces that are created to be experienced and enjoyed.

 

ELLIOT SUMMERS MLA – Creative Director.

A co-founder of Polygon in 2015, Elliot has overseen the development of over40 designs for play centres, residential and the occasional public space. Prior to this he was partner in Garden Consultants, a small company created to work directly with clients to enable them to create their own spaces and understand what they could achieve with a small amount of help. This is in addition to teaching at both Melbourne University and RMIT since 2010 at a masters and undergraduate level, from master planning and design to technical grading techniques.

Qualifications and Affiliations:

Master of Landscape Architecture, University of Melbourne, 2013

AILA member since 2013.

Rob Hamilton MLA – Landscape Architect.

Specialising in playspace designs, Rob is well known within the playground sector, most particularly through his regular industry presentations on behalf of Play Australia. He joins Polygon after many years running his own business, Parks and Playspace. 

Rob loves the Australian bush, has excellent native plant knowledge and a strong grounding in both theoretical and practical ecology. At the core of many of his designs is the complexity and dynamism of the natural world through natural shapes and curves, plants, rocks and longs and similar unmanufactured, fractured and organic materials.

Wherever possible Rob prefers to take direct responsibility for a project from concept to practical completion, giving him an excellent appreciation for the costs of various landscape options and for how to best fulfil requirements within a budget.
