We help our clients create successful places that people will want to live work visit with science, data and our design skills

Place Profile is an auditing, diagnostic, benchmarking and briefing tool that measures cities using empirical evidence.

It provides a process for consistently measuring urban patterns, forms and functions that generate rich data sets. This data allows for:

Accurate diagnosis of urban issues and potential for change

Objective benchmarking between similar urban areas

Empiric inspiration for transformational city design

URBAN PATTERN

We have identified nine urban parameters to describe urban space that are divided into three categories:

01

Definition of public and private land expressed as a ratio of the area

02

The extent to which private space is accessible to the public

03

Aspects of the urban pattern relating to the way in which land is subdivided
