AREA Urban Design & Architecture
Making places imaginatively to deliver the successful, sustainable and humane environments of the future.
AREA work throughout Scotland as Urban Designers and Architects. We make places and re-establish communities that resonate with cultural values, whilst responding to urban grain and the natural environment.
We are committed to the idea that successful masterplanning results from an imaginative response to people’s needs and local conditions. We consider design to be a positive, democratic, life-enhancing process and a problem-solving process. We take inspiration from both natural and manmade landscapes, developing ideas jointly with our clients, policy-makers and local people. We work across a range of scales from urban regeneration, masterplans and design codes, to the detailed delivery of streets, architecture, parks and urban spaces.
