The creation of beautiful and memorable places for people is an art that requires a coordinated and holistic approach.
Levitt Bernstein's landscape and urban design group provides this service, from masterplanning, neighbourhood strategies and public realm projects to parks, gardens and play spaces. The award-winning group has its own independent workload, in addition to contributing to the practice's architectural and urban renewal schemes.
Successful urban design finds creative and practical solutions to the challenges of development and regeneration which are sustainable over the long term. Whether it is a new project, or the reinvention of a failing area, we are committed to creating places that encourage social interaction and address imaginatively the pressing issue of climate change. We frequently draw on the expertise of developers, specialist consultants and contractors to work together to shape places which are safe, attractive and economically diverse.
Our landscape architects have extensive experience in the design of urban spaces, with particular expertise in environmental improvement and estate renewal. The high degree of technical knowledge covers design and implementation, with specialisms in horticulture, arboriculture and ecological, sustainable design.
Our long experience of structured community engagement is often combined with the incorporation of work by artists to develop thriving, popular and distinctive places.
