Kelvin Grove Urban Village, Brisbane, QLD, AUS: Urban Design and Planning and MasterplanningValue: convert dead spaces into vibrant money-making places. 

We identify short and long term ideas and strategies – including Lighter Quicker and Cheaper. These enable ideas to be prototyped and tweaked. Importantly many of the solutions involve commerce – or people making money!

Positioning: deliver on the needs and expectations of users and best practice. 

We explore the context to drive authenticity, establish a baseline and ultimately understand the problem. We consolidate the aspiration with a vision, measurable objectives and best practice principles.

Point of Difference: authentic places which have a reputation for attracting and retaining people. 

Differentiation in our modern world is simply about creating places were people are king – not cars and creating an experience that no other place can offer.
