Urban Design

Public space expresses a city’s cultural life. It should be dynamic and inclusive in its street design, pedestrian corridors, urban structures, and open space with a clearly expressed hierarchy.

DesignInc Sydney - Byron Bay Bus Interchange

We believe a balance of coherence and variety is essential, as are familiar patterns and a diversity of forms. We consider relationships between people and places to develop a nuanced response and restorative urban approach that reconnects us to nature.

Our Urban Design experience spans a range of portfolios including:

  • Residential precincts
  • Transport and infrastructure precincts
  • Industrial precincts
  • Public domain precincts

Urban design is all about amenity—it’s about social equity. My role is to bring that thinking so that everything we do is for the benefit of the most people, and that’s across age, across gender, across geography
