Generating a Different Kind Of Capital: The Social
‘Social capital' - the resources that become available within a community as a consequence of networks of mutual support, trust, and obligation - is enhanced by our Collaborative Placemaking process.
Building Virtuous Circles: The Economic
Attractive and successful places naturally invite investment and generate added value. From the outset, we establish a strong vision for each of our projects. Our approach maximises value, builds confidence, and leads to a virtuous cycle of investment.
Encouraging Life Between Buildings : The Physical
People act differently in places they feel belong to them. We arrange buildings to create outdoor space where everyday life can flourish: well-designed public spaces that make it impossible not to stop and chat, sunny or shady spots ideal for a café, and informal spaces for children’s play.
Investing In Initiative: The Environmental
Environmental issues are complex and evolving. As a practice, we have invested heavily in developing the expertise that has put us at the forefront of sustainable urbanism. Our placemaking methodology embeds environmental responsiveness at every level: a holistic approach we pursue from masterplanning to the detailed design of individual buildings.
