Urban Design

At Isthmus, we approach Urban Design comprehensively and consider, at all scales, factors such as urban context, grain and character, vehicle and pedestrian accessibility, legibility and safety, commercial and economic vitality, social and cultural identity and environmental restoration.

Urban Design is an integrating, collaborative field in which we bring our skills in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and RMA Planning together to offer holistic design solutions for project of all scales and types. As design team leaders this ‘big picture', integrated approach to the design and planning process enables us to develop a shared vision with clients and to work closely with a wider consultant to lead projects through the design, development and consenting process.

Isthmus is unique in the breadth and depth to which we deliver projects; we take pride in the fact that we take projects through from the initial stages of structure planning and masterplanning, through complex design and RMA consenting stages to detailed design and implementation. Our expert understanding of the land development process enables us to ‘hold the vision' and deliver innovative design-led solutions on the ground. We are strong advocates of design-led urban intensification as the best way to achieve high quality urban environments that create inspiring places to live, work and play.
