Our approach to urban design is rooted in the idea that landscape and streetscape are key to creating spaces with a real sense of place, as well as delivering schemes that offer commodity, firmness and delight. Our involvement with the delivery of Cambourne new settlement has enabled us to see at first hand how design theory translates into the creation of living places.
With our philosophy and experience we offer our clients imaginative yet realistic urban design solutions that meet the needs of their project’s challenges and opportunities.
“…the benefits of a sympathetic and well thought out landscape strategy are undeniable when the objective is to create a place where people will want to live, work and play.”
