Good urban environments are cohesive, interesting, safe and functional, accommodating diversity and vibrancy. For us the process begins with consultation creating a platform for people to participate in the shaping of their environment.
We strive for integrated urban design, with close collaboration between local government, stakeholders and others who want to contribute to developing the city. Starting with analysis we develop concepts incorporating a mix of buildings, streets and parks. The work is further developed with sketches that inform discussion and feedback.
We create multidisciplinary teams incorporating architects, landscape architects and environmental experts as well as expertise in anthropology and cultural geography. We work with public and private sector clients to produce masterplans, detailed architectural schemes and interiors in both urban and rural contexts.
Our vast experience enables us to raise the questions that help achieve a transparent and coherent planning process from the outset. Through dialogue, we ensure a clear planning process that achieves the best results for the specifics of each unique project. Drawing from a team of town planners, architects and landscape architects we can bring in the right specialist knowledge at the appropriate time in the process.
In local government projects, we lead the planning work, undertaking research and consultation. For private clients, we pave the way for an efficient planning process through a dialogue with the local authority.
