Our Urbanism Services

According to the United Nations, by 2050, approaching 70% of the world population will live in urban settlements. Architectural projects are increasingly set within urban contexts or contribute to urban communities, whether cities, towns or urban villages. For the remaining 30%, situated in rural communities, an increasing proportion have urbanised lifestyles due to technological advances that facilitate remote working.

Urbanism is a broad subject which includes a lot of master-planning, urban design and architecture. These three areas should work together holistically in order to produce places of the highest quality and value. At Noel Isherwood Architects we also believe this is one of the ways to help overcome the pressing questions that the climate change emergency is forcing us to face.
