We believe that through urban design and architecture our projects become essential contributors to the process of giving form, shape, and character to groups of buildings, to whole neighborhoods, and the city, and blends architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning together to make urban areas functional and attractive. Within the South African context it is about the making of places and spaces that enable the broadest possible spectrum of people to participate. Urban intervention is for and about people, and should at all times emphasise the value and significance of place, and always aim to have as focus the common and the shared spaces.

We believe that our urban design and architecture is about making connections between people and places, movement and urban form, nature and the built fabric. We aim to draw together the many strands of place-making, environmental stewardship, social equity and economic viability into the creation of places with distinct beauty and identity. We understand our work to be derived from, but transcending planning and transportation policy, architectural design, development economics, engineering and landscape. It draws these and other strands together creating a vision for an area and then deploying the resources and skills needed to bring the vision to life.
