Urban and Master Planning

By: Ellis David Architects  09-12-2011

Our focus is on design approaches that effectively respond to urban planning challenges that arise out of today's global challenges. We indentify interconnections among physical, economic and social dimensions. Using a holistic approach to design and development, we build on the innovative integration of "culture" and "nature" to facilitate sustainable urban development.

The firm is best known for its long-range visionary planning, both for building and site specific projects and functional relationships. The ability to think beyond the building and its' immediate site has rendered the firm a valuable asset to the city, governmental and various private planning groups.

Consideration for the site as a whole by examination of arterials and roadways, traffic patterns, modes of transportation and the integration of buildings and infrastructure are vital to the understanding of the very fabric of which the city is composed. As any city grows and evolves over time, the successful integration of all variables is a challenge that must be met.
