We help our clients create places that are all about people. Involved in every stage – strategy, design and activation – of a given project, we design and deliver experience masterplans that test, inform, and underlay extant and future spatial masterplans.

In focusing on how the brand of place better enables its design and build, we aim to ensure that our clients’ projects benefit the people whose immediate and long term interests we all serve. For more, see Projects.

WE BELIEVE

01
First and
always life

Design for the local and the locale. Be open-minded ethnographers and open-source curators. Involve the people you serve. Stand in their shoes. Become their stories; then tell them – beautifully, with care. It’s how we know we are making the right decisions at the right time.

02
Be socially
useful

Have a higher purpose and know that that purpose is one and the same as being commercially astute. This is our north star. It guides investment, investigation, planning, design, build, activation, and management.

03
Design for time
well-spent

Whatever the project, design in the name of experience. Storyboard on the basis of our findings, illustrating how we go from attraction to involvement to belonging. This way lies the making of places full of purpose and possessed of their own identities.

04
Co-create the
outcome

Involve all stakeholders in the strategy, design, and activation of the project. Programme the various – temporal, physical, virtual – touchpoints through the lens of evolving types of use. Be a responsible experience masterplanner. 

05
A whole-ecosystem
approach

Champion diversity and silo-busting at every level. Think ‘identity’, ‘tech’, and ‘culture’ as well as ‘place’. Create diverse transdisciplinary design teams that reflect and understand the stakeholders they serve.

06
Plan long-term,
start now

Make plans for beginning immediately. Let your immediate doing inform infrastructure and architecture as much as it does a project’s programmatic components. In starting now, we continually field-test for the medium and the long-term.
