Planit-IE (Planit Intelligent Environments) is a creative design studio focused on realising healthy places to live, work, and play. Our team of Urban Designers, Landscape Architects and Digital Artists is collectively driven by the challenge to embed design quality within the built environment – whatever the scale, whatever the context.
We continually explore the relationship between man and nature / development and landscape. Our approach begins with place - its character and physicality; leading to the development of sensitive proposals grounded in a deep respect for the environment. Large-scale strategic masterplanning and urban design projects are always landscape-led, whether working in the Green Belt, AONB, heritage landscapes, cities and towns, degraded or beautiful places.
Our strength lies in our ability to craft communities, via regional strategies and visionary masterplanning, through to the design of urban quarters, streets, squares, parks and gardens. Scale is a constant consideration: timescales; scales of speed and distance; and the physical scale of things. We are interested in the way people relate to their surroundings (from the wider environment to the arrangements of their immediate lives), and how legibility, understanding and behaviour are modified by the perception of scale.
Many of our strategic projects develop into fully implemented schemes. Consequently, we approach our projects with a deeper understanding of how they will be delivered – we are makers of places.
Motivated by a belief that we are designing legacies, our proposals have sustainable foundations. We aspire to create enduring environments for healthy living and, in turn, Intelligent Environments that are appreciated by current and future generations.
