Urban planning and design consultancy with a focus on using placemaking and infrastructure to make our towns and cities more efficient and better places to live and work.
Urben is a design-led urbanism studio, delivering sustainable, innovative and creative outcomes across a range of planning, landscape, urban design and place-making projects in the UK and beyond. Our name is an amalgamation of ‘Urban’ and ‘Environment’ - providing recognition that our towns and cities are human ecosystems that must not only support our basic needs but also give each and every person the space to thrive. We operate at the intersection of the disciplines of planning, ecology, landscape architecture and urban design. We apply our rigorous and creative approach to spaces, places and territory through the lens of human nature, and use design-led processes to guide our projects with expertise, leadership and tenacity.
We believe that success comes through collaboration; We design for and with clients, and are equally as interested in how each project works and is assembled, as how it looks. Good design is good business … and good fun.
