What Is Urban Design and Planning?
Urban design is the process of designing and shaping cities. It focuses on the large-scale development of different groups of buildings, the overall community, public spaces, etc., all with the goal of making the city or town more sustainable and functional.
Urban planning is more of a technical and political process that takes on land use and environmental issues that have overlap with urban development and building projects.
Urban planning helps to ensure the orderly development of communities. However, we also focus on sustainable urban planning to truly help your project thrive into the future.
We combine our decades of experience in urban design and planning to truly address the specific needs of your project.
Past Urban Design Projects
Since our inception we’ve been assisting our clients on both national and international levels. Take a look at some of our recently completed projects below:
- Our team was the principal urban designer and urban planners for the Downtown Dubai project encompassing the 416-acre Downtown Dubai district which surrounds the Burj Khalifa, the worlds tallest building.
- For our client, Emaar PSJC, we developed the district master plan, developed computer simulations for many of the most prominent buildings in the district and prepared a complete set of detailed design guidelines to ensure that each individual development parcel was developed in a manner consistent with the planning and design intent.
- We prepared a master/urban design plan for the reuse and expansion of Samoa Town, a former lumber company town in Northern California. The services we provided include planning for reuse of the community’s existing residential units, commercial, industrial and community facilities, as well as the planning of nearly 300 new residential lots on the outskirts of the community.
