What we do

Architecture and Interiors


Urbis have experience in working across a range of sectors including commercial, leisure, retail, residential and public buildings. Our projects vary in scale and are located across the UK.

Though the nature projects can vary considerably , our consistent approach and philosophy is driven by common interests and beliefs:

· Good design results from a synthesis of our clients aspirations and needs with a positive and sensitive response to physical and historical context.

· Good design can create economic value for our clients

· We strive for a clarity of solution no matter how complex the brief

· We are not bound by any one stylistic approach and believe each project demands its own specific design response




Urban Design and Masterplanning


Urbis have considerable experience in masterplanning large mixed use development schemes, many within historically sensitive sites incorporating listed buildings. We have experience of dealing with planning and statutory authorities across the UK.

We specialise in negotiating complex planning approvals on behalf of our clients, co-ordinating the inputs of all consultants to achieve best value for all stakeholders. 




Design Management


Since the inception of the practice in 1999 Urbis have worked with property developers throughout the UK to identify, evaluate, brief and manage development projects ranging from multi-million pound mixed use developments to single one-off high value residential projects. Our background in architecture combined with our fundamental understanding of the economic imperatives which make successful projects for our clients allow us to represent our client’s needs through all stages of the project.


Urbis have an extensive knowledge of planning and development processes and statutory legislation gained through the delivery of numerous high value, high complexity projects.
