URBAN DESIGN & BUILT ENVIRONMENTS
With the growing complexities of our urban environs, urban design provides a critical role in shaping our cities. The functioning and appearance of our public domain defines how we feel and experience space and place. At KI Studio, we believe in instilling emotion into our designs to create engaging experiences. We want people to experience space and place positively and the space to interconnect to enhance public life and express the ideals and values of our community.
KI Studio undertakes a variety of projects in the area of public domain and infrastructure. The firm is renowned for its expertise in bridge design and has completed numerous tunnel and road projects in Australia and overseas. Key services include public domain planning and design, art and heritage interpretation, infrastructure planning and design.
Our approach is to create innovative, aesthetically pleasing designs with sustainable schemes that reflect the unique ‘genius loci’ of each site, ecologically and socially.
Human health, social opportunity, cultural diversity, community identity and spiritual expression are all significant issues to the well being of the community.
In order to develop an understanding of what can be done in a place, we need to understand that place, its ecological processes, its place in the psyche of local people, and its role in the fulfillment of cherished visions and the relationships between those factors.

responsive to each project.
