Urban Design

The restoration of our existing cities is as much a part of our placemaking commitment as the creation of new towns and villages. The increased viability of core downtowns and existing urban neighborhoods will only make our regions stronger and the conservation of our natural environments possible.

Our urban planning practices draw from traditional precedent and local context for infill opportunities from the single building level all the way to the reconfiguration of entire blocks. Our goals are to sensitively weave new infill into existing urban fabric with minimum disruption to the existing context.  By following the principles of sound urban planning, we will strengthen the urbanism of the area.  Some of these principles include fronting buildings at the street, transparency at the street level, human scaled detail on the building and on-street parking with parking lots behind buildings.
