Masterplanning and Architecture

Carter Jonas’ highly-skilled urban design and architectural design teams work together with planning, property and infrastructure colleagues to develop commercially-informed design proposals, ranging:

  • from 1 acre to 500 hectares;
  • greenfield, brownfield and town centre settings;
  • across the full range of land uses and combinations of land uses; and
  • at all stages of the design process from planning policy through to promotion documents, planning applications, delivery documents, detailed design and construction.

Our work is informed by a design sensibility tuned to the qualities and traditions of English landscape, settlement, and architecture. Working side-by-side with our commercial, planning and development colleagues we prepare sound strategic land proposals, regeneration frameworks, and architectural schemes.

The design team is comprised of over twenty professionals located in offices in London, Cambridge and Newbury. The team is capable of providing a wide range of masterplanning and urban design services from all three offices, and a specialist architecture service out of the Newbury and London offices branded as Sutton Griffin When the full suite of design services is needed all three offices work jointly to vision, design and deliver schemes.
