A location which reflects what we do

Our studio is in a high quality conversion of a former Edwardian department store in the heart of Cardiff City Centre. The Creative Quarter is a great place to work. We share the building with a host of other creative businesses. It is a great place to meet clients and host events.

Most importantly our team love working here. During lunchtimes we can, and often do, pop to Cardiff market for lunch, use one of the City Centre gyms or hop on a Next Bike and take a refreshing ride through Cardiff’s stunning Bute Park. Our team can pick up a few bits or run errands as we are in the heart of the City. Our location also means that we often go for lunch on a Friday or go for a few drinks after work.

We live what we do. This location means that virtually all of our team walk, cycle, bus or train to work nearly all of the time. Cardiff is a great place to do business and we think that the Creative Quarter is one of the best workspaces in Cardiff.

The power of inter-disciplinary exchange

Our team is the heart of what we do and their eduation and professional experience is based upon:

  • town planning

  • urban design and masterplanning

  • landscape architecture

  • architecture; and

  • business management and administration

Our integrated approach to combining these specialisms which is at the root of our culture. By blending our skills in accordance with our clients’ needs and by striving for professional excellence, we believe we can offer our clients solutions that are not only realistic and imaginative but deliverable.

Deliverable solutions

What drives us is being involved in successful projects and creating great places that are realised on the ground, not on files, in reports and in drawings. Our focus is always on providing advice that helps our clients deliver their aspirations on time and to budget.

Sense of humour and humility 

There aren't any egos in The Urbanists! We all enjoy our work and enjoy working together and to perpetuate this we only recruit those people who will add to our espirit de corps.
