SUB-REGIONAL & CITYWIDE FRAMEWORKS
Identify the intensity and function of land uses; their connection with transport networks, and key natural resources.
To determine the larger scale elements that influence development frameworks
To create a built environment that is responsive to humans centred design; which is interwoven into the cultural fabric of the context and is a distinct merger of science, utility and art.
MASTER PLAN & URBAN DESIGN
Set the role of the site / area within the context of the immediate neighbourhood and connections to regional transport routes
To inform and refine regional and sub-regional structuring; to set parameters for the planning of sites.
Responding to the surrounding existing and future development context and public context
To respond to development frameworks; to determine building envelopes.
Discover: Involves speaking to and spending time with people who are affected by the issues.
Define: The insight gathered from the discovery phase helps to define the challenge.
Develop: Seeking inspiration from elsewhere and co-designing with a range of different people.
Deliver: Testing out different solutions at small-scale, rejecting those that will not work and improving the ones that will. Delivering the most empathetic design
ARCHITECTURE / BUILDING DESIGN
Proposed buildings respond to specific site context, as well as meeting needs of their occupiers.
To test and refine site layout and built form.
PRODUCT & GRAPHIC DESIGN
Ensuring all communication essentially is experienced through the senses and imagination.
Spatial + Experiential graphic design to assists planning by making places legible. To help people with orientation and navigation.
