Active travel

Our approach starts by retrofitting streets into continuous (car free) 10 minute  pedestrian loops which safely connect priority services and facilities (such as schools, parks, and hospitals) in a comfortable and pleasant manner.

In collaboration with highly skilled scientists and engineers, climate adaptive technologies are integrated to mitigate heat, save energy, control floods and restore biodiversity.

Liveability

The street environment is rethought with functions and services that attend the needs of multigenerational and diverse communities. User-requirements of slow groups are always priority! Inclusiveness a must!
