Quality planning and design is at the core of shaping cities and communities. Cistri has in-depth expertise in strategic planning, master planning, urban design and landscape architecture.
Through this expertise, we help our clients to develop site-specific urban strategies and public realm designs that stitch cities together, optimise place performance and create destinations that live and work, inspire and reward. Our expertise can guide our clients through the statutory planning process to achieve the approvals necessary to turn their vision into reality.
Our focus is on creating high-performing, liveable places that work. We take built form, the public realm, transport infrastructure, open space and human activity, and shape them into CBDs, neighbourhoods, communities, retail precincts, town squares, campuses and centres.
Drawing on the wider and varied expertise within the Cistri team, our imaginative and intelligent design solutions balance community interests, government priorities, heritage values, the constraints of the natural terrain and existing built environments, economic imperatives, infrastructure requirements and land-use patterns.
We work across the spectrum of design: from strategic visioning to implementation. We’ve worked on every kind of urban project: master plans, urban design strategies, infrastructure, new communities, public realm, commercial and residential, revitalisation and renewal of cities.
