Buildings and urban spaces provide the framework for urban life and help make areas attractive.
Buildings and urban spaces help promote a better quality of life for citizens, improve social cohesion and can even have a significant branding effect. Some of the main challenges faced by cities are the transformation of industrial areas to residential and business areas and revitalisation of urban areas and rural districts along with climate proofing and establishment of new infrastructure. It is all about creating synergies, from planning to facade design, from facilities to urban life, from choice of materials to planting.
Architecture, planning and landscape have many instruments that affect urban life. Access to parks and nature is of great importance, as are interesting shops or cafes in the area. Likewise, the area must be easily accessible and feel safe. All these elements greatly depend on the design of buildings and urban spaces. Investments in a better framework for urban life pay off and may offer a significant boost to the local economy when the right balance is reached between housing, business, urban space and traffic.
Revitalisation of the former vulnerable neighbourhood gives the residents a boost.
