Practice Areas

Research and Innovation

We participate in research on multi-faceted urban problems like affordable lifestyle, alternate mobility, smart city integration, place-making concepts, resilience and community building. We collaborate with international partners, industry leaders, groups with aligned interest and the user to get a holistic view.

Design and Development

We build places that advance social well-being, provide economic engines and promote growth in balance with ecology for a community by design. We collaborate with industry experts to lead the urban design, zoning, landscape and placemaking solutions at the district level.

Community Building

Our public engagement process is rooted in 3 principles, engage, educate and involve. In order for a project or plan to be truly effective, it needs to be grounded in and supported by the community that it is intended for. We bring a variety of in-person, and digital tools, which we tailor to the demography we are working for and their capacities to comprehend and respond.
