Masterplanning and Urban Design

Gillespies' masterplanning and urban design team provide design solutions for the development of urban areas, cities and regions.

From spatial masterplans and public realm strategies that regenerate our cities to the creation of new urban cores and extensions for emerging cities throughout the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asia, we combine design quality with an in-depth knowledge of the planning process to ensure both creativity and deliverability. In particular, we are specialists in the delivery of urban extensions, city frameworks, area action plans, development frameworks, and design guidelines, as well as conceptual and detailed proposals for large mixed use schemes.

To achieve a place whose appeal will endure, that enhances prosperity and is an attractive place in which to live and work, a multi-faceted approach to design is essential. Gillespies emphasise the integration of market analysis, urban design, and infrastructure engineering and delivery strategy in the preparation of our masterplans. This approach ensures that our solutions are economically viable while being socially and environmentally responsive. We lead multidisciplinary teams to produce the highest quality masterplans for a range of sectors.

Gillespies' team is composed of experienced architects and urban designers embedded in a multidisciplinary firm, with proven strengths across a range of disciplines. We thrive on complexity of masterplanning projects and take on challenges posed by private and public sector developments across the world.
