Strategy & Masterplanning
Michael Grubb Studio work on large scale Masterplanning projects, from urban city centres and mixed use developments, to the creation of new neighbourhoods – our scope of projects are diverse.
From local authorities, government organisations, commercial companies and developers, we deliver Lighting Design proposals that provide structure and hierarchy co-ordinated and supported by regular stakeholder engagement. We work closely with our clients, project partners and key stakeholders to ensure our thinking is aligned.
Our approach often begins by stepping back initially. This provides us with an overview of the proposals before we attempt to focus in on details. We review and assess the brief, in order to advise and consider other ideas or opportunities that may need to be considered.
We develop Lighting Strategies that define the lit character for streets, spaces, routes, architecture and the Public Realm. We negate the concern for maintenance and running costs, by delivering schemes that are energy efficient and easy to maintain.
We focus on how people will interact and respond to spaces and architecture, in order to assure the enrichment and enjoyment of the scheme by others. Our research and development involves in depth studies looking at the current location and demographic of the area, followed by an assessment of how the new Public Realm will be used by people during all times of the day and at different times of the year.
We regularly take on the role as ‘Lighting Design Guardians’ for our clients to provide strategic guidance and advice for future lighting installations. In this way we create ongoing sustainable solutions that are both energy efficient and cost effective, as well as ensuring that a cohesive lit environment is maintained.
