Masterplanning and Urban Design

AFL’s masterplanning and urban design expertise drives right into the heart of our practice values: creating vibrant, sustainable spaces, optimising environments and delivering meaningful places to experience, live and thrive.

Everything starts with a bold idea and a team committed to its delivery.

Our greatest projects have been achieved by forming a strong partnership with an ambitious client and an imaginative, engaged and equally ambitious team. With clients ranging from landowners, developers, home-building organisations, public and private sector agencies, we deliver design solutions from our three masterplanning offices in Birmingham, Manchester and London.

Our clients have the vision and the determination to create great, long-term and holistic partnerships with us. They recognise the intersections of high-quality masterplanning, architecture and urban design expertise and the value of engaging our team from first idea to final fruition.

Diversity of experience creates thriving communities.

A site can only be unlocked when multiple sectors integrate. A community can only grow when it is provided the opportunities to work, live and play.

Drawing from expertise across the Residential & Commercial, Sport & Leisure and Healthcare & Education sectors, we specialise in the mixed-use environment. Our integrated range of skills provide the vision and capability required to understand, identify, and deliver imaginative, sustainable and effective design responses to unlock the potential of complex sites.

Sustainable places are created through the interface of landscape-led masterplanning; integrated networks and connectivity; and social capital and community development.

At this interface, we cultivate a creative, characterful and memorable sense of place, where people gather and choose to further enhance.

Creating a concept - layer by layer

We reveal the intricacies of a site through detailed analysis and consultation, and identify prompts that inform the structure of the final masterplan.
