Urban Design and Masterplanning

Our approach to urban design masterplanning is one of careful response to context so is always site specific. Because our team have backgrounds within the disciplines of landscape architecture and planning, masterplanning always starts with an understanding of the landscape, topography and history of a site. The resultant plans are always rooted in local character which is of equal importance whether in a rural or urban setting.

Taking a context driven approach to design meets with current Scottish Government policy and good practice where the emphasis is on dynamic and locally driven solutions and inclusive debate. Ensuring continuous dialogue within the project team, with the client, and relevant authorities is therefore also fundamental to our work.
