Our co-creative philosophy is enabling and gives people a voice. We make plans and build places from local knowledge, aspiration, and collective dreaming.

Listen

We consider carefully what people say (and what they do not say) and look for themes, patterns, and threads in these words. This helps us to understand the complexities within people and places. We can help give them a voice.

Communicate

We articulate complex ideas and proposals in ways that excite, engage, illuminate, and inspire. We are confident speaking to large audiences. We can chair discussions and moderate debates, both in person and on digital platforms.

Plan

We write legible reports based on what we learn from our research, from stakeholders, and from the places where we work. Our plans and policies are robust, can withstand independent examination and are supported at referendum.

Collaborate

We work with people, places, and communities. We integrate our skills with architects, engineers, landscape designers, graphic designers, filmmakers, sound designers, surveyors, developers, landowners, and digital media experts.

Design

We are urban designers, and we prepare urban framework plans and strategies that deliver positive outcomes. We put together renewal schemes for cities, towns, and villages. We create new street designs, civic plans, and public realm schemes.

Test

We test our theories and ideas, using constructive disruptions and real-time interventions in space and time. We trouble-shoot, experiment, make models, and use game theory to help us identify practical and exciting solutions.

Research

We undertake contextual studies so we can better understand and respond to a project brief. We think locally, regionally, and globally. We use our knowledge and experience to build platforms for future proposals and interventions.

Map

We express our research findings using spatial plans, sketch drawings, infographics, diagrams, and other innovative visual systems. We can make sure that complex messages become accessible and can be quickly understood.

Engage

We connect with communities. Our workshops and events, both online and real world, allow people to better understand the issues that affect the landscapes, cities, towns, and villages where they live and work. We give people confidence.

Change

Nothing stays the same and we cannot go back in time. We are optimists and always look to the future. This outlook helps us manage positive transformations on behalf of communities, agencies, and stakeholders.
