Urban design and public realm enhancement are an important part of the work we do at Urben Studio. Our team have worked on a wide portfolio of projects in the sector, recent examples including a public realm strategy for Hatton Garden Business Improvement District, design of the public realm at the new Crossrail station entrances in Farringdon and a masterplan for Euston Station. We work closely with other consultants to analyse how people move through these spaces and put forward robust proposals which can unlock new social, economic and cultural opportunities.
