Masterplanning and urban design are the first steps in making attractive, successful places and involves the integration of physical, economic and social development strategies within a spatial framework.
Urban design draws together the many strands of placemaking into developments which have a distinct identity, where people wish to live, work and enjoy. Placemaking is a principle that is central to our design approach, and concerns the design of environments that strengthen local identity.
Master planning and urban design experience includes urban regeneration settlements, universities, racecourses, industrial developments and warehouse/distribution parks across the UK and abroad.
We believe that landscape architecture is an integral part of the project planning and design process. The requirement for higher density schemes and mixed use developments make the successful design of external spaces increasingly important.
Our design solutions are based on the character of the place and creating designs which are appropriate to the location; bringing together architecture, setting and place. Our objective is always to deliver creative, distinctive and pragmatic solutions for each project.
We provide a comprehensive service including original concept, detail design, technical/production information and contract administration. Projects vary in scope and scale from public realm solutions for residential and town centre schemes, to specific landscape schemes for a wide variety of building types.
