Developing or regenerating is about building a long-term future and creating a place where people come first. That is why HKR’s approach to masterplanning and urban design focuses on creating environments where people can live and work in a safe, integrated community.

HKR : MASTERPLANNING & URBAN DESIGN HKR : MASTERPLANNING & URBAN DESIGN Our Masterplanning Process HKR's masterplanning team creates designs Urban Design projects are often highly HKR’s approach to masterplanning that address the social and economic complex. At HKR we begin by defining and urban design focuses on creating requirements of a site’s location. a clear and comprehensive agenda that environments where people can live and covers all the critical factors for analysis work in a safe, integrated community. We do this by first undertaking a detailed and implementation, including: contextual and socio-economic appraisal of the site, then planning workable strategies › Prospective land use for: › Urban character › Land use › Structure and grain › Transport › Density and mix › Planning—both existing and › Scale, height and massing aspirational › Continuity and enclosure › Development—with clear parameters › Sustainability for phasing and implementation › Adaptability and diversity › Landscaping › Open space and amenities › Details and materials
  • 5. HKR : MASTERPLANNING & URBAN DESIGN HKR : MASTERPLANNING & URBAN DESIGN Our Approach to Urbanism HKR's philosophy is about delivering design: › rooted in context › a scaled response › space positive design › loosefit flexibility and in the end, about the people.

Every building can and should engage in a dialog with the history, beliefs and needs of a particular place and time.
  • 7. HKR : MASTERPLANNING & URBAN DESIGN HKR : MASTERPLANNING & URBAN DESIGN a scaled response... People interact with their environment based on their physical dimensions, capabilities and limits. Buildings scaled to human physical capabilities have steps, doorways, railings, work surfaces, seating, walking distances, and other features that fit well to the average person. People also interact with their environments based on their sensory capabilities. The human perception is not purely a physical act, it is affected by cultural factors, personal preferences, experiences, and expectations. At HKR we understand that scale in architecture should always respond to human requirements and benefit the people who are living there.

Relative risk RELATIVE LIFESPAN › art should be risky FURNITURE › architecture — adventurous › masterplanning — conservative DECORATIONS WINDOWS & DOORS Many of us are living off the forward thinking of the 19th century designers. STRUCTURE Infrastructure built robustly and STREET conservatively can and should be generous. This is the framework that all development CITY hangs on and is pivotal to HKR's masterplanning and urban design. If the network of urban space is created to allow for the current use rather than designed exclusively to the current use then the adaptability of that framework is greatly increased. This maximises its sustainability.
  • 9. HKR : MASTERPLANNING & URBAN DESIGN HKR : MASTERPLANNING & URBAN DESIGN 01 space positive design... The bane of most cities is leftover space, 02 which is often the instigator of social troubles. Space has to be programmed and designed. At HKR we don't let the buildings get in the way, we use the buildings to create the space. Space positive design is about › public gain › the best possible address › the best possible development areas › optimising development potential
