Our community, where we live, work and play, is made up of open spaces, buildings, infrastructure, amenities and of course people.
We are connected to place through space with carefully considered landscaped schemes, a balanced mix of building types and integrated travel networks. This requires a collaborative and creative process driven by a client’s needs.
Experienced in designing visionary yet practical masterplans, we deliver realistic, commercially viable developments which provide successful public environments.
Our experience of unlocking the potential of sites is based on detailed research, design quality and a deep understanding of the unique character of every space. Key stakeholder engagement is critical at an early stage when delivering successful urban design solutions, which include effective community engagement. These processes enable the community to have a say in the design and outcome of a scheme to provide a better informed masterplan to satisfy local needs.
Designing open spaces and shaping the public realm is as important as the individual buildings themselves, something which requires a multi-disciplinary team approach. To see the bigger picture, we work closely with a variety of different consultants including urban planners, landscape designers, civil engineers, ecologist, arboriculturists and highways consultants. This ensures we provide a well-considered, sustainable and holistic design.
The process often begins with illustrative sketch plans which analyse key features on the site, access points, vistas and positioning of vital green space or public realms. We typically transform the concept into a 3D model so we can accurately evaluate the building massing.
As site plans and building types begin to finalise, we can use our visualisation software to create street scenes and aerials views which are an important tool in planning discussions with Local Authorities and communities alike.
