Planning, design and problem solving for urban environments.
By taking a holistic view of the environmental, economic and cultural context of cities, we form a sound basis on which to create land use plans that are relevant and robust. Drawing on our development consent experience we can also help navigate the ever changing planning system.
In conjunction with masterplanning or as a separate activity, Urben designs high quality solutions for the spaces between buildings. The condition of public and semi-public spaces is a critical part of the quality of life in cities, and at a human scale cities need to consider how they want to look and feel for residents, workers and visitors.
Urben leads projects from concept to pre-construction. We identify opportunities for new urban interventions, engage with stakeholders, identify project risks, oversee technical surveys, direct detailed design and manage project reporting.
