Successful urban design integrates buildings and places within the wider physical and strategic context. Through approaching a project from the perspective of master planner, architect and designer, we are able to extract greater value from a development project. This 'added value' can then be passed on to our clients and also, to the end user group - the ultimate inhabitants of a project.

Working with UK based, Petersham Group, we are supporting the municipality and local stakeholder groups to develop an integrated, sustainable and phased strategy for the regeneration of this historic and culturally significant waterfront area, which includes a ferry and rail terminal and a range of different land uses. Integrated Master Plan for a site of 21.5 hectares at Dubai's International Media Production Zone (IMPZ). Completed with Hyder Consulting, the Master Plan provides a framework for a predominantly residential community of up to 350 units with supporting leisure, recreational, retail and community facilities. The Master Plan has been arranged to encourage passive cooling across the community, create shaded pedestrian routes and pocket parks and orientate units to minimise direct solar gain.

Integrated Master Plan for a sustainable community of up to 150 units of varying typologies in Ibadan, Nigeria. Occupying an attractive, south facing site of up to 10 hectares, new development has been arranged to maximise views across the river while an underlying landscape strategy integrates existing planting, provides a variety of open spaces for leisure and recreation and supports a sustainable urban drainage strategy.

Concept Master Plan for an exemplar development project of up to 15 hectares in central Jinan, China. Located around the proposed 'Jinan Tower', the Master Plan provides a framework for new retail, commercial, residential and hospitality accommodation together with a public transport interchange and a core area of civic space. A linear park with a series of pedestrian priority routes at varying levels has been proposed to connect the new complex and the city's main train station while also providing a vista of the tower upon arrival to Jinan.
