“GOOD URBAN DESIGN OFTEN GOES UNREMARKED. WELL-DESIGNED INTERVENTIONS CREATE THE PLACES IN OUR TOWNS AND CITIES THAT PEOPLE LOVE. PLACES WHERE THEY WANT TO LINGER AND TO LIVE…”
We are urbanists, creating great places for people.
We are a small consultancy proud of the high quality of service we provide to our clients and commitment we devote to the communities we work with.
We are a specialist masterplanning and urban design consultancy. We work with both public and private sector clients in the development, property and environment industries, enabling the planning process through sound urban design expertise.
Typical projects integrate advice and design and these range from strategic design and site-specific master planning, to Design and Access Statements, Building for Life Assessments, Urban Design Risk Assessments, and Expert Evidence for Public Inquiries and Hearings.
We also deliver public realm strategies, town centre regeneration initiatives, wayfinding and connectivity studies and streetscape design, as well as cultural masterplanning, cultural planning and the evaluation of urban design schemes.
At ARU, we obey the three principles of urban design: context, context and context. Read more
