Healthy Place and Space Making


Practice Website





Our philosophy for a healthy and sustainable place making:

In order to achieve healthy and sustainable placemaking, and where appropriate, we put every effort to fulfill our environmental duties. And as everyone has a role to play in this important agenda. It requires us to plan collectively if we are to significantly reduce local health inequalities and create healthy and sustainable places by following but not limited to:

Provide safe, healthy and sustainable living and recreational environments: housing (quality, accessible, space standards, affordability, comfort, mixed tenure, type and density); good quality safe and stimulating public realm.

We avoid and mitigate adverse health and sustainability impacts. We take local health inequalities into account by making use of public health intelligence and evidence, we make use of health impact assessments and checklists, design and manage buildings facilities and the surrounding environment and infrastructure to improve health and maintain sustainability.

We use design to generate an opportunity to promote and facilitate healthy lifestyles: pattern of development (mixed use), movement/ connectivity and urban design quality to promote active travel, physical activity and mental well-being; healthy eating, active travel, physical activity, safe space for social interaction and play; we design buildings to maximize physical activity by encouraging walking and use of stairs and providing sufficient cycle storage.

Mental, social, physical and economic as part of place making so it is vital for us to consider all four aspects of health and wellbeing equally. some industries are, perhaps, more used to dealing with the environmental design parameters associated with physical occupant health, and while these aspects are critically important, they are only one part of the picture. In order to provide the most favorable environments in which people can flourish, it is vital to consider all four aspects of health and wellbeing equally.



We work hard to Create environments that are more socially inclusive: making places that cater for a variety of needs and aspirations, through the life-course and in different circumstances, promoting informal interaction through space.

We design projects that are less demanding on resources and more resilient: using nature-based solutions, and good practices of production, consumption and disposal to promote health, protect the environment and improve resilience to climate change and natural disasters. To reduce energy consumption through design.

In every project we work on we make sure that we respond to global and local environmental issues: climate change resource depletions, biodiversity loss, waste management, food security, minimizing carbon emissions; sustainable design, construction methods and building material; suitable/renewable energy; flood risk; biodiversity and nature conservation.

Being in the 21st century require us to embrace the smart technologies: by incorporating and future proofing for new technology and innovation that improves health and environmental outcomes across a range of areas both at an individual level and within the public realm.
