In the news: South West Business Insider

Our Bristol Studio Design Director John Everett contributes to the article on mixed-use developments, published in this month’s South West Business Insider.

“As architects, planners and urban designers, we have an important role to play in designing developments that reference their local context and future developments to be successful, for both developers and the wider community,” he says.

The article looks at developing a sense of place and purpose for commercial and social benefit.
