LANDSCAPE & URBANISM
Fashioning an aesthetically pleasing and harmonious environment, offering a range of community lifestyle choices, each reflecting high standards of planning and design to meet the physical, social and economic needs of all segments of the society, the Urban Sector of ECL offers services for different scales of urban projects in the stages of preliminary investigations, feasibility studies, environmental assessments, development planning, detailed designs, contract documentation, project management, construction supervision, technical assistance, institutional strengthening and training.
Our vision is to create vibrant places and communities which respect the environment, respond to physical challenges, embrace high quality design principles, are sustainable and, importantly, meet our client’s commercial objectives.
ECL’s Urban Designers + Landscape Architects seek to create places that respect the environment, deliver efficient responses to site challenges, are socially sustainable and, importantly, meet our client’s commercial goals.
With our innovative and notable architectural approach, our designs rely on clear ideas deriving from the specific character of each individual site. Our aim is to create new urban and landscape stories combining honesty, sturdiness, stimulating experiences and inclusive qualities.
From large-scale planning to concept development, strategic design, detailing, and project management, ECL handles every aspect of Urban Design and Landscape Architecture. Our focus is on urban environments, city development, cultural institutions, residential and educational environments.
We consider and apply sustainability in a broad sense, incorporating aspects ranging from climate adaptation to material life-cycle assessments, as well as economic and social considerations, into our landscape design vision. We facilitate multifunctional landscapes and urban spaces by integrating rainwater management, plantings, architecture, building techniques, and a vast knowledge of materials
Through our continued experience and research, we have developed within our practice the expert knowledge that enables us to deliver such projects on behalf of our clients. Our approach is to create healing environments through sustainable designs to venture towards health cities and ultimately to develop and improve healthcare systems and designs with a view to achieving the most modern and efficient solutions to meet future needs of patients and clients.
We create therapeutic environments that encourage “well-being and recovery.” As contemporary designers, we take pride in our continued dedication to the significant research and development required by the healthcare industry, which allows us to operate on the principle of providing innovative solutions to complex problems.
We know that the environment’s quality and character have subtle but powerful effects on the users of a facility. The physical environment can be an essential part of therapy in the healing process. Apart from functional efficiency, well-designed spaces, natural light, and appropriate architectural features enhance the healing experience and contribute to better and relatively faster positive outcomes.
Our strategic approach to clinical planning is linked with a strong emphasis on design quality, resulting in effective spaces that feel truly special. We collaborate with our clients to create a clear vision for their estate, sharing the pride of providing the best possible healthcare. We constantly evaluate our work and evolve our thinking to ensure we push the field of medical architecture forward.
