Masterplans & Area Strategies

Placemaking at its best – area-wide regeneration strategies and the creation of new parts of the city.


Projects that embrace the city as a work in progress, enlivening spaces, places and high streets over a short-term period, while supporting long-term ambitions.


Buildings with a complementary mix of uses, designed holistically to meet the needs of a number of different activities and users.

Public Spaces

New or rediscovered spaces; parts of London that have been given new life through improvements to streets, squares, playgrounds, waterspaces or parks.


Markets, shopping centres, shop fit-outs and high street strategies – exemplary new places for the exchange of goods and services.

Transport projects and related architecture that improve the experience of moving around the city and add to the quality of the environment; and infrastructure projects – water, waste, energy – that help London work more efficiently and sustainably.


From office buildings to interiors to co-working hubs and affordable workspaces for making and manufacturing, new projects that create inspiring working environments and meet the needs of business, technology and the individual.
