Masterplanning is the ability to see the bigger picture and demands a broad range of skills. Architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and engineering underpin the best major redevelopment schemes as well as specialists in public realm, infrastructure, construction delivery and green infrastructure. At ONE – all this expertise is within one company.
It is a remarkably collaborative and creative process driven by the primary aim of realising the client’s vision and operational requirements while being responsive to the environment and the needs of people.
Our core motivation is the desire to create new environments of exceptional quality. Although every project is different, ONE schemes are site-specific, well-integrated, dynamic, legible and highly functional.
We bring a fresh perspective to developments; unlocking their potential to enhance the environment, regenerate communities and increase return on investment.
Our experience of ‘unlocking sites’ is considerable in the U.K. and overseas for example, in China, Gibraltar and the Falklands. We have undertaken a range of schemes including large scale masterplanning of urban extensions and medium scale regeneration of city centres, university campuses, hospitals and health complexes, commercial quarters and science parks, urban parks and residential developments and even animal welfare and rehoming centres.
Working together is good for everyone
To create the perfect masterplan, we recognise you need the passion and vision to rejuvenate and reinvigorate an area, combined with the ability to empathise and engage with all the stakeholders involved to create an inclusive environment. We believe early engagement with local authorities and key stakeholders is highly beneficial in achieving planning consent. By taking this holistic approach to public realm, we create high quality accessible and inspirational spaces with a true sense of place.
Seeing the bigger picture also means looking ahead. We are deeply conscious of the impact that today’s decisions will have on communities in the years to come and ensure the future is always part of our design thinking which has extensive wider social and economic benefits.Back to services
