Our core focus, both as STUDIO hp and in our academic practices, is on landscape and urban planning. In addition to our core staff, STUDIO hp functions as a fluid working collective, connecting people with a diverse range of skills and expertise according to the requirements of the project.
We think of our practice as one of developing projects and places, and have extensive experience of both projection and implementation through a variety of developments rooted in both landscape and urbanism. Our specialisations in urban ecology and property development are at the heart of all of these undertakings.
STUDIO hp sees the integration of architecture and landscape as key to any urban development project, with the interplay of economy and ecology as another crucial component.
