The process of Masterplanning, much like Urban Design, is a holistic one combining many different disciplines from all walks within rural and urban environments.

    We begin with analysing and understanding a potential development site or region, working with and listening to communities within and surrounding that area, and anticipating how these elements may interact and grow over time.

    Spatial arrangements and strategies then begin to form an outline for the proposal, which may be further developed in collaborative and coordinated designs that respond to brief, budget, demographics, history, culture, ecology, hydrology, climate and context.

    Whether the project is site specific or at a larger regional or national scale, the idea is that by the end of the process there will be a framework of development within which more detailed designs may evolve. The Thomson landscape team is able to use their experience in masterplanning processes, combined with the wider knowledge of the team and collaborators to develop a spatial language that marries the client requirements with the site-specific analyses to ensure that development going forward is of a sustainable and dynamic nature.
