Master Planning & Urban Design

Motus Architecture has substantial experience working with community groups and local government to develop their assets through clever urban design and master planning.

Numerous commissions have centred on the strategic planning of Activity Centre Precincts for local Councils, and have involved a thorough investigation of possible uses for Council owned land.  These Precinct studies required the clever integration of commercial, residential and retail zoning with public buildings and open spaces.  Achieving efficient and cost effective outcomes to revitalise these parts of the community was our major goal.

We also have extensive experience working with community groups in the strategic planning of neighbourhood centres and the redevelopment of ‘tired’ properties.   Motus Architecture has been instrumental in assisting them to adopt alternative development opportunities that have maximized the yield of their assets.

Motus Architecture strives to create urban spaces that respond to their function and activity, but at the same time provide a sense of place.  It is important that these spaces engage and interact with the community and evolve with the community over time.
