Our urban design team offers integrated masterplanning, landscape and architecture services for solutions that set places apart.
Starting with research, we work through our site specific urban design process, from feasibility studies and stakeholder engagement to planning and design submissions.
Curating special places is spatial storytelling. It weaves the stories of the past with landscape, people and culture to create communities. The crisscross of macro and micro - the little things that give each place its specialness, combined with big picture thinking is what placemaking is about.
Masterplanning vibrant new communities is part science,
Our masterplanning service navigates your vision through the sometimes-conflicting jungle of regulatory rules to achieve commercially successful, people-centred places.
Our strategically integrated design process weds market insights and your commercial objectives for successful masterplans, taking you on a journey from scrub to hub.
Commercials and a vibrant community are the main measure of a masterplan’s success. Creating connected places that put people first - not cars, plants, or awards (although these things are nice too.)
Our architectural services run the gamut from planning, design, detailing, site observation and intelligent VR and 3D models to maintain your asset long after we’re gone. If you need more from an existing building, we’ll transform it to improve its performance and add value.
Putting more in the visioning and planning stages, we help you navigate the complexity of development. Our digital technologies take you into the future to remove uncertainty, get buy-in and give you the confidence to test ideas.
The litmus test is ‘Have we delivered a building that delivers commercially, looks great, stands the test of time and consumes less than it contributes?’ And almost always, the answer is yes.
Spatial design covers retail and interior design for national retail networks, businesses, and residential and tourism developments. We dig deep into end user insights for magic concepts that connect.
We focus on bringing brands to life through storytelling and meaningful customer experiences. Integrated technologies and industrial product design help make the customer experiences unique and memorable, and spaces intimate and connected.
From modular teller-desk design that helps frontline staff easily escape to a safe zone to pre-fabricated bathroom and kitchens for affordable housing, we know how to spatially design to exceed expectations.
When good landscape architecture meets strong urban design and architecture, the results are symphonic.
Our landscape architecture service is deployed right up front at the thinking stage, to integrate natural site features into the built forms, for richer, more seamless connections.
Good landscape architecture is so much more than plants; it gives people a connection to the land and a strong sense of place. The landscape plan reflects the site and embodies the project’s objectives, be it a masterplan, streetscape, residential development, hotel, commercial building or business premises.
Technology enables you to have a deeper understanding of and influence on your project than ever before.
We use virtual building technology like virtual reality, augmented reality and building information modelling to improve the quality and speed at which we design, manage, prefabricate, and deliver. This means we immerse you and your stakeholders in the design process. You can walk through virtual spaces, experience the design at human scale and show us what needs tweaking.
Our technology democratises the design process: architects are no longer the only ones who can visualise the finished product. It’s a change we’re happy to see - because we know it means faster, better results, and happier more certain clients.
