Urban Design & Masterplanning

Masterplanning incorporates the macro and micro to provide an integrated design response, a sense of place and long-term benefits to the communities that are enhanced. From conceptual layouts and place making analysis through to 3D models of future spaces and stakeholder representation, S+SA provide a full masterplanning service to our clients.

The Masterplanning process requires a deep understanding of the phasing of a project over a long period of time. Not only will the needs of the client be considered, we will also look at the social, cultural, environmental and political needs of the cities and its inhabitants, for example looking at the wider context of the buildings we design, usually outside of the project boundary.
