Urban Design

Shaping the physical realm of cities and towns is an aspect of design that the HPI team approaches with enthusiasm. Over the years, we have helped shape a number of urban environments to provide quality solutions ranging from small-scale urban infill projects to streetscape and public space design, to master planning for small towns and metropolitan areas.

HPI brings a unique skill set to the table that allows us to look at the functionality of place in all the complexity found in the urban situation. We analyze the streetscape, circulation patterns, building placement, and zoning regulations to provide a solution tailored to meet our clients’ needs. We do this by working with local officials and the community, while respecting the culture and history of place and invoking ecological and sustainable principles into our final designs.
