spatial design and strategy

South Bristol - spatial strategy and optionsOne of our prime concerns is the creation of places which will endure – through different social and economic cycles, and beyond individual fads and fashions in architecture.

To create such meaningful, enduring places we learn lessons from successful examples from past and present. We use design and guidance tools such as:

  • spatial strategies and diagrams, at the strategic level
  • development frameworks at the local and neighbourhood levels
  • development briefs, design guidance and design codes at the local street level

We use these mechanisms in a way which draws on local identity and character without seeking blind pastiche replication of the past. The old and the new can live together comfortably.
