Tall Buildings & protected views

Our experience includes townscape and visual impact assessment for tall buildings, in locations as diverse as London, Edinburgh, Oxford, Birmingham and Poole. These projects need to respond to specialist planning and design requirements, including urban masterplans; tall buildings policies and the protection of historically or culturally important views. Clearly expressing the impact of change, in the context of both a dynamic city environment, and historic and valued Conservation Areas and public parks, is vital to the success of these projects; as is the ability to appreciate and clearly describe the visual composition of built form and how a proposal interacts with its surroundings.

The following projects provide a snapshot overview of the range of projects we have worked on but cannot cover every example.
