Landscape Architecture & Urban Design
We are committed to developing outdoor spaces that reflect and complement their surroundings and serve the people who use them. Regardless of a project’s scale, thoughtful, attractive, and sustainable design solutions engage people, improve functionality, fit the context for which they are designed, and enhance property values. By employing contemporary place-making practices and innovative approaches, we bring a fresh perspective to the dynamic task of connecting streets, buildings, and the diverse mix of public and semi-private spaces that happen ‘in-between’. Focus provides a full range of design, planning, and construction management services – for both public and private projects – from concept through to completion.
Working closely with the clients’ goals and using a multi-discipline approach, we determine project requirements, thereby identifying the relevant historical, social, and environmental influences. Through collaboration, open communication, and creative thinking, we create elegant, functional and cost-effective urban spaces that foster a sense of place. We use the latest 3D imaging and GIS technology to provide realistic and easily understood images that encourage engagement by facilitating public and project stakeholder understanding.
