Our approach to urban design seeks to combine the most desirable aesthetic elements, human qualities and community aspirations with the commercial realities of market acceptance and project viability and delivery. These principles guide our design philosophy, from large scale structure planning of new communities to concept formulation for a single site to the preparation of design briefs and guidelines for others to follow and implement.
Our design team has extensive experience in large scale community planning such as master planning and structure planning for whole towns and new suburbs, residential subdivisions through to site specific designs for retail centres and shopping precincts, mixed use projects, aged care developments, educational institutions, public realm / streetscapes and infill sites. By focusing on place making and building communities we ensure our designs incorporate high levels of legibility, interest, attention to safety and functionality.
Fyfe prides itself on being a leader in the preparation of design guidelines for infill sites and precincts, emerging urban communities and rural communities. We understand the need to articulate the vision for the overall design as it will read on the ground and bring the skills to provide plan designs and policy to enable the vision to be implemented.
Consultation expertise facilitates interaction with existing communities and stakeholder interests through the design process to deliver shared vision and outcomes.
