Urban Design & Masterplanning

Back to Our Sectors

Sound masterplanning is the bedrock of sustainable placemaking, and ultimately, of healthy and happy communities

Placemaking is a privilege and an opportunity that demands a rigorous understanding of context, a robust masterplan and a clear vision to create the conditions for public life to flourish: where places for people are more important than spaces for buildings.

We have a proven track record of delivering value to communities and clients across a very wide range of sectors and scales ranging from infill sites to whole settlements.

Our approach is simple:

  • We listen
  • We understand
  • We create

It is rooted in best practice, and tempered by decades of experience. We frame our approach as a series of questions each project must address to ensure the best possible placemaking outcomes can be achieved, based on a shared vision that is always ambitious, yet also deliverable.
