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 work-live-play, designed holistically to meet the needs of several different activities and communities, where there is a maximum of 10 minutes walking distance between core activities.

Including active travel projects that celebrate active mobility and non-motorised means from small, low traffic streets to larger scale, low traffic neighbourhoods.
From office buildings and interiors to co-working hubs and affordable workspaces for making and manufacturing – new projects that create inspiring working environments.
