Urban Design

We are community driven and commercially astute. We practice true interdisciplinary design. We are connectors of people to place.

Our Urban Design and Master Planning team is committed to the creation of good places for people. We are flexible, commercially grounded and innovative.  We believe great design outcomes come through shared knowledge, shared experience and collaboration. Urban Design and Master Planning must also be delivered with a long-term view to achieving greater economic, place and people centred outcomes. As such, Place Design Group has adopted an Urban Design agenda that utilises placemaking process as an opportunity to drive clever and sustainable place transformation.

We are community driven and commercially astute.

We practice true interdisciplinary design.

And we are connectors of people to place.

We create good places

 

Our Urban Design and Master Planning team is unified in their commitment to creating true places for people.

 

And, whilst the definition of Urban Design varies, our ethos centres on it being about making great places, great streets, cities, towns and centres. We are flexible, commercially grounded and innovative.  We believe great design outcomes come through shared knowledge, shared experience and collaboration.

Urban Design and Master Planning must also be delivered with a long-term view to achieving greater economic, place and people centred outcomes. As such, Place Design Group has adopted an Urban Design agenda that utilises placemaking process as an opportunity to drive clever and sustainable place transformation.

We believe in the test and trial of our designs. We believe in the importance of place experience, and we work to empower communities to take ownership and management of their places and spaces through a strategic placemaking approach.

For every client, we seek to deliver true excellence in Urban Design solutions that achieve economic uplift, stronger communities and new social connections for those who are using them.
