Urban Planning

Shaping tomorrow’s towns and cities

Urban planning specialises in creating the basis for tomorrow’s towns and cities. As urban planning architects, we work with everything from strategic urban development and feasibility studies to master plans and local development plans. Based on interdisciplinary dialogue and careful planning, we create the optimum starting point for building functional and sustainable towns and cities.

Urbanisation, the climate, technology, family patterns and ways of life are constantly changing, as are standards and expectations with regard to functionality, value and quality of life. This goes for large cities with historic city centres, new urban areas, suburbs, towns near cities and small villages, which are all changing.

As urban planning architects, we assist our clients in every aspect of urban planning – from consulting on strategic urban development to drawing up feasibility studies as well as master plans and local development plans. We help, for example, to define an area’s character and life, the required functions, the different types of housing to be built and where to build roads as well as planting plans and designs to add character to a given area. We always keep an eye on the detail as well as the overall picture.

We possess in-depth knowledge of the Danish Planning Act (Planloven), and navigate on the basis of our extensive experience within the complex world of planning. The department works with developers, local authorities, politicians and citizens in a cross-field where architectural quality, market mechanisms, economics and political visions all have to synthesise. Based on our professional expertise and experience, we know the perspectives from all sides of the table, and we transform this knowledge into sustainable and value-creating solutions.

We are specialists in urban planning, and the plans we prepare create a sound basis for tomorrow’s towns and cities. We work for everything to come together, which requires that we listen to our clients and business partners, and ensure interdisciplinary dialogue. We bring technical experts on board as required.
