One of VLA’s main points of difference is being based in a regional community. VLA’s work history is dominated by projects north of Perth and in the WA rangelands. Having grown up in regional WA, Stephen Vigilante has always been committed to living and working in regional communities and providing professional services usually only offered by city-based consultants. VLA relishes the opportunity to collaborate with other experts based nationally and internationally to bring a broader spectrum of services to regional projects. By being based in regional WA, VLA maintains a connection to regional landscapes, communities and cultures. VLA is committed to building the capacity of regional people to sustain their local environments and communities through effective planning and design of place.
