Markets & Expertise / Public Realm / Mixed-Use Development

Mixed Use Development

Mixed use developments are key components of our towns and cities. We see it as our role to integrate the public realm of these diverse new developments with their urban context so that the streets, spaces, squares and service functions complement and add to the potential civic, social, environmental and economic life of their surroundings.

We achieve this by starting with a thorough understanding of the place and our client brief, and by applying five principles: a cohesive palette of materials; a legible hierarchy of circulation; creating social opportunities; responding to the local characteristics of the area; and logical planning of functions. Combined with our design talent, this is how we bring value to people’s lives, to urban environments, to local economies and to our clients.
