I love being an urban designer. The lack of boundaries is attractive, obviously, but so is thinking strategically, working as part of a team, and enhancing proposals so that they appeal to the broadest range of stakeholders.
Personally, I also love playing football, relaxing at home, or seeing my children grow up. At work I like watching us evolve as a team, debate design, and draw pictures that evolve in to physical spaces.
I’m most proud of the variety of projects we work on. There are few firms of our size with the range of studies, plans, proposals or schemes on site that we have. In a short space of time we have built a useful reputation, and are beginning to bear the fruits of this, so that existing and new clients are asking us to bring our skills, knowledge and experience to ever more exciting opportunities.
