As the UK’s largest transport architects with over 30 years’ experience, we are passionate about public transport and its city shaping impact. We aim to improve passenger environments and experiences through world class design; integrating people and systems and enabling everyone to enjoy and engage with architecture and art.
Our track record in residential design quality is underpinned by our thorough understanding of the public realm and how the infrastructure of our cities works. We are able to analyse, develop and resolve schemes, juggling competing parameters and collaborating with multiple stakeholders, to successfully deliver exceptional housing across all tenures.
As our cities grow and more of the population moves into them we need infrastructure that can keep pace, delivering the fundamental systems and facilities that maintain our cities. We are passionate about creating civilised cities that are people focused connected by high quality infrastructure.
With the future of air travel predicted to double over the next 20 years airports will face significant environmental challenges. Airports and the transport infrastructure networks supporting them will need to provide seamless interchange and utilise the available transport capacity to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
As the populations of existing settlements increase, greater pressure is put on land use to accommodate this growth throughout our cities. With improved railway infrastructure investment comes greater potential for new places to live, work and play. Better connectivity and convenient, attractive public transport systems offer up opportunities for existing urban expansion or the creation of whole new settlements as desirable destinations in themselves.
The successful integration of retail and leisure in transport hubs can greatly enhance the passenger experience. Our transport expertise allows us to seamlessly blend commercial offers while balancing the often competing operational aspirations of transport hubs of all kinds.
Mobile technology is driving huge challenges in the workplace and creating new opportunities for designers. Office buildings have to offer more than ever before, from myriad activity settings to collaboration-friendly environments. Today’s offices are all about choice, informality, sociability and the opportunity for chance encounters that act as a catalyst for ‘the next big thing’.
We are passionate about community, its residents and businesses. Our aim is always to create urban spaces and buildings that enhance the quality of life of those who work and relax in them.
Visual communication is a critical part of the work we undertake. It has the power to engage effectively with clients and stakeholders and thereby not only inspire, but also promote informed balanced decision making. It is fundamental to the success of each and every project we undertake.
