Urban Design and Planning
Our objective is to create space and conditions for people to meet in our processes and in the physical environment. We work with urban planning at every scale, from development strategies for entire cities and neighborhoods to individual city blocks, the design of a playground, and the choice of a streetlight. The plans we develop are rooted in the local context as well as in developments in the world around us and also to refine existing biological and cultural values. We strive to create robust plans whose structure and content create opportunities for change over time. We always strive to create a human scale in the environments we work with. The projects we work on may be found both in urban environments and in the countryside. We design processes and develop methods for dialogue, creativity, and feasibility in our projects. Dialogue is central to everything we do, so we work collaboratively and inclusively with citizens, clients, municipal staff, and administrative authorities. We work interdisciplinarily with urban planning, architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, and visualization. We use pictures and models to create a shared vision and ensure a high level of creative design without sacrificing on feasibility.
"We work with urban development throughout the entire construction process."
