Public realm, streets & cycle networks
We believe the way people use, experience and remember places is influenced by their experience. Successful public realm allows for efficient, safe and enjoyable movement for all users. Moving through streets is a vital part of a city's movement network and can constitute the majority of public space in dense urban locations. We believe that streets should function as public spaces where local communities interact and children play safely. Streets are therefore crucial to the economic, social and environmental function of urban locations and a vital part of the public realm.
We design and implement streets that are multi-modal, walkable and above all, safe. We have been working with government and private developers on various projects that aim to set a new standard in how all modes of transport use and experience streets. We aim to reverse the decline of pedestrian environments and consider contrarian approach to street design that considers the most vulnerable users foremost while encouraging environmentally sensitive alternatives to the private vehicle use.
