Commercial Placemaking and Masterplanning

We create innovative and future-proof commercial spaces that respond to the rapidly evolving demands of consumers.

We help our clients to create original and enduring consumer-facing spaces as part of mixed-use developments or larger regeneration projects. Supported by insights from our Making Places research lab, we work with landlords, investors, agents and designers on development and repositioning projects from urban renewal to rural reimagination. 

We have expertise across multiple asset classes, from workplace and residential developments to shopping centres, delivering spaces that transform the consumer experience, as the lines between live, work and play environments blur.

Consumer Insights

Everything we do starts with the consumer. We embark on every project with in-depth research and insights, creating a holistic overview that allows us to deliver responsive and curated commercial environments. 

Commercial Masterplanning

We design the consumer-facing components of a development, designing the commercial and social realms of the ground floor. We work across a wide spectrum of asset classes and put future-proofing at the core of our thinking.

Delivery Blueprint

Unlike a traditional creative agency, we are part of a global real estate business and financial services group. This allows us to tap into in-house expertise to deliver design-led solutions for residential, retail, workspace and rural environments.

Operational Strategy

We work closely with clients to create delivery framework to ensure that each real estate development has legacy at its heart.
