ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN/CONCEPT/RE-CONCEPT

When developing the conceptual design, we envision a meaningful place that people can connect to on a personal level. We do not simply design buildings; we create the ultimate living experience within the architectural concept. Our conceptual vision develops through understanding constraints and opportunities of the property, as well as state construction regulations and marketing research. We are set up to meet all the technical and commercial requirements of the client. At the same time, we do not downplay the importance of economic, social, historical, cultural, and ecological aspects.

MASTER-PLAN DEVELOPMENT

We provide elaboration of construction documentation, including all the sections necessary for coordination and construction. We fulfil the functions of design, coordination, quality control, and obtaining the enabling documentation. Being in control of each subsequent stage of planning, our team provides high-quality documentation for all forms of property, including non-standard ones.

ARCHITECTURAL AUDIT/ PROJECT OPTIMIZATION

We offer an independent assessment of the property in accordance with current standards. Architectural audits can be carried out at the design stage. Following the expert analysis, we prepare a report with a comprehensive description of the property characteristics, and a list of recommendations. This report can also be used as a foundation to re-conceptualise the project in a way that is beneficial to the property.

ARCHITECTURAL SUPERVISION

We are interested in a high-standard realisation of the project. Architectural supervision by Urban Experts and Leslie Jones Architecture ensures that your property is consistent with design solutions. At this stage, our experts carry out scheduled site visits – providing feedback, introducing amendments into working drawings and providing interpretation of the project documentation for the client and building contractor.

INTERIOR DESIGN

Careful, thorough design can significantly increase the market value of the property that is for sale or rent. A strong first impression can raise the investment appeal of the property. Our designers will make sure that you benefit from this high-quality interior design.

TYPES OF REAL ESTATE

MIXED-USE OBJECTS

We develop our concepts as an intelligent response to the needs and tastes of urban citizens. Mixed-use objects unify different levels of everyday life, and thus ensure comfort and synergy within the space. Our aspirational projects show unity of local conditions with innovative architecture, that brings both aesthetic pleasure and commercial benefit.

COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES

Our successful projects highlight innovative and practical approach towards commercial properties – from regional-scale malls to themed shopping centers. We shape our designs through careful understanding of consumer needs and tenant demands. Hence, we create commercial architecture that stays true to its purpose, and exceeds visitors’ expectations.

RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS

Among our projects there are residential districts, single high-rise residential buildings, and apartment houses in mixed-use complexes. Due to efficient planning solutions we create living spaces with maximal net surface. By gaining a view of the prospective buyers’ needs, we design apartments with a unique character and favorable living conditions.

ENTERTAINMENT COMPLEXES

We design various recreational facilities – cinemas, restaurants, food courts, specialized recreational objects, themed attractions, sport facilities, and family entertainment centers. Comfortable environment, that shapes an overall visitors’ experience, is the key element to our high-quality designs.

HOTELS AND RESORTS

We design various types of tourist resorts – from vast holiday complexes, which constitute a part of a mixed use development, to all hotel categories. We have a profound understanding of visitors’ wishes, as well as tour operators’ demands.

TRANSPORTATION HUB

Transport facilities are the key to a healthy city that attracts tourists, investors, and partners. State of transportation hubs shows the city’s ability to keep up with the times. As businesses become increasingly international, economic expansion depends on how “global” the city is. At the same time, infrastructure demands major investments and continued support. One way to ensure self-sustainability and profitability of transport hubs is to connect them to commercial areas. Well-planned traffic interchanges direct flows if income towards business and shopping districts.

OFFICES

We believe that offices are meant to provide a healthy and comfortable working environment for people. We create office spaces that stimulate work efficiency, and make everyday tasks more enjoyable.

There is no common recipe for the design of someone’s house. It is a resonance of the person’s spirit. The fundamental principles of the design are to fulfil functional requirements and provide allowance for adaptation, both in terms of flexibility and the ability to respond to the inhabitant’s development, over time. The successful house inspires its inhabitants while seamlessly providing for their daily needs.
