Urban Design

­

Newcastle Science Central

Newcastle Science Central is a new science-themed urban quarter in the heart of Newcastle, which occupies the 20ha former Tyne Brewery site. Part of a multidisciplinary team, we were the landscape architect behind the public realm design and associated statutory consents for the development. The brief defined strong aspirations for a distinctive high-quality public realm which promotes [...]

Transport infrastructure

Navigating the land for major transport developments. The effect of major transport projects on the environment is a contentious area. With experience in design, environmental impact assessment and mitigation solutions, as well as reviews and expert evidence for public local inquiry, examination and select committee, we’re known for our commitment to promoting beneficial, cost-effective and [...]

Shawfield National Business District

Holistic landscape design will be essential to successful regeneration. LUC worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team to deliver this large-scale sustainable development framework in the east of Glasgow: a new city district, with improved connectivity to other regeneration sites. Long-term transformation of this deprived area was the objective; the Shawfield National Business District could [...]

The central objectives were to improve the pedestrian environment and make the city centre safe again. Our [...]

Oxford Brookes University

A multiple-award-winning public realm. The £134m redevelopment of Oxford Brookes University’s Headington Campus embodies the spirit of the university’s transformative ‘Space to Think’ initiative. We were appointed to design the public realm following a limited competition. Working as part of the masterplanning team, we were faced with incoherent, straight-jacketed architecture, poor legibility and outdoor space, [...]

Townscape Assessment, Visual Analysis & Design Guidance

Townscape assessment and design guidance for new urban developments Understanding urban landscapes and design We investigate and explain landscape context and sensitivities, advising local authorities and developers on changing the existing townscape, to improve scheme proposals and maximise chances of planning consent. We believe that design and assessment work best when undertaken interactively, so our [...]

Health and Wellbeing Planning and Design

Planning was originally borne out of public health legislation and recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the health benefits of good planning and design. Our planners have been engaged in ‘health checking’ planning policies, and developing policy responses to fast food takeaways.  We also consider health as an important element of sustainability [...]
