For more than 20 years PLAZE planners works in urban planning, architecture and landscape design. In most projects, the disciplines overlap and concepts are developed combining urban planning and the layout of the public spaces well as urban design and architecture.

​Urban Planning

Our century is an urban time. PLAZE has designed regional clusters, entire new cities, new urban centers, city blocks and urban public space. Urban planning, no matter what size, is a design within an existing system.

Careful analysis of the urban context is a crucial start for every project. The urban tissue is made of land-use, landmarks, streets and buildings, squares and parks. And, most relevant, the inhabitants and their way to live, commute and establish social and culture character.

Architecture is surrounding us, we spend most of our time in buildings. PLAZE believes, that architecture has multitudinous impacts: from the façade design, the impression of the building in the urban context, the internal organization of public lobbies, atriums and functions to separated offices or exclusive residential. Shopping malls need to guide the customers, residential buildings need to offer places for social encounter and private, individual zones.

Architecture is a technical discipline. This includes an efficient and possibly flexible space layout, an efficient structure, energy efficiency and innovative façade technology. From the early design stage, costs and feasibility have to be compared against the aesthetic concept.
