Are you passionate about design? Do you want to extend your design experience of masterplans, regeneration and design advice/ management?  Do you want to create great places?

We are expanding our team and have an immediate vacancy for an urban designer to join our award winning, multi-disciplinary team of urban designers, architects and planners.

We are an employee owned practice and work for a wide range of private and public clients on an eclectic mix of projects. These range from large scale masterplans, new settlements, urban extensions, estate regeneration projects, and complex mixed use/ commercial proposals down to smaller scale arts, community and sports related developments.

What sets us apart from other practices is that we are motivated by delivering high quality, meaningful design and successful place-making.  We have a strong design ethos and work on the crossover between urban design and planning. We adopt a positive and collaborative approach to move projects forward and achieve great places.
