In a rapidly urbanising world, landscape and public realm design have a great potential to positively shape the future of cities. Public spaces play a key role in defining the character of a city, helping people feel connected to the place and community and boosting social capital by bringing together diverse groups and enhancing local economic development.
We recognise the need of adopting a comprehensive approach to urban development to create the best cities possible. Combining an in-depth understanding of placemaking with a wide cross-section of skills and sector expertise, we are driven by a deep philosophy which places people at its core.
Streets represent 80% of public space in our cities. Recognising the need to move away from a vehicle focused design, the challenge ahead is shifting from utilitarian corridors to ‘healthy’ streets, creating spaces that respond to the demands of a modern city whilst remaining highly liveable and quality focused.
