AREA Urban Design & Architecture LLP

AREA work throughout Scotland as Urban Designers and Architects, helping to make architecture and re-establish communities that resonate with cultural values, the structure of places and the natural environment.

We are committed to the idea that successful masterplanning and architecture result from an imaginative response to people’s needs and to local conditions.  We consider design to be a positive, democratic, life-enhancing process and a problem-solving process. We take inspiration from both natural and manmade landscapes, developing ideas jointly with our clients, local policy-makers and local people.  

Our core Urban Design and Architecture skills are supplemented by extensive experience in planning, landscape design, project management and community engagement across a range of scales from urban regeneration, masterplans and design codes, to the detailed delivery of streets, architecture, parks and urban spaces.
