No place is a blank sheet of paper. Each has its own distinct historical context, architectural character, and social and cultural setting, which all play a part in the story of its heritage. Using our expertise in urban design and development planning, we work to identify a place’s heritage assets, fully understand their significance, and demonstrate how the most valuable characteristics can be used to shape future development.

Our detailed analysis helps form a compelling case for positive new development, aiding planning applications and informing development briefs which balance conservation with the need to promote regeneration in urban areas. Good design lies at the heart of our approach, improving the setting for heritage assets and guiding the creation of places with unique character.
