Streets and urban spaces

Streets and urban spaces  serve as the business card of the city or area and have a strong influence on the local identity. The importance of outdoor spaces as shared living rooms for residents and venues for urban life is continuously increasing. A pleasant and exciting local environment attracts business,  pedestrians and cyclists. Our goal is to develop the user-friendliness of urban outdoor spaces, without ignoring technical functionality.
