The design of the urban and rural environment is a vital and integral part of HLP's work.  Distinctive places are developed through a rigorous process of analysis and engagement with the public, users and stakeholders.

Attention to detail of hard and soft materials in response to context creates exterior spaces which function well in response to constraints and are safe and pleasant to use.  In both urban and rural contexts HLP's approach promotes the quality of human experience as well as the enhancing of eco-systems through respect for local habitats.
