placemaking

We believe that it is often the spaces between which create a vibrant and successful place. Whether an intervention within an urban street, a new rural community or an extension to an existing settlement; the spaces between are an important part of our design ethos.

In developing a new environment, it is critical that we enhance, rather than detract from the qualities of place. Key to the success of delivering successful places, ema adhere to some basic principles embracing; scale, proportion, selective materials, orientation, movement and connections combined with an integrated landscape strategy. We work with our clients to create spaces which enhance the buildings they wish to deliver and create a sense of identity.
