Design Guidelines

Fyfe’s approach to urban design seeks to combine the most desirable aesthetic elements, human qualities and community aspirations with the commercial realities of market acceptance and project viability and delivery. These principles guide our design philosophy, from large scale structure planning of new communities to concept formulation for a single site to the preparation of design briefs and guidelines for others to follow and implement.

Fyfe’s urban design team includes key personnel from Connor Holmes (a Fyfe Company) which brings together a range of design based professionals encapsulating design, architecture, planning and geographical information systems in order to provide superior design solutions.

Our design team has extensive experience in large scale community planning such as master planning and structure planning for whole towns and new suburbs, residential subdivisions through to site specific designs for retail centres and shopping precincts, mixed use projects, aged care developments, educational institutions, public realm / streetscapes and infill sites.

We have specific knowledge of and expertise in medium density housing and apartment products and designs for the delivery of higher residential densities in what might otherwise be traditional housing estates.

We are a leader in the preparation of design guidelines for infill sites and precincts, emerging urban communities and rural communities, and we understand the need to articulate the vision for the overall design as it will read on the ground and bring the skills to provide plan designs and policy to enable the vision to be implemented. 

Our urban design team is focussed on place making and building communities and therefore our designs incorporate high levels of legibility, interest, attention to safety and functionality.

Design processes often involve interaction with existing communities and stakeholder interests.  Fyfe has consultation expertise to facilitate a process of design interaction to deliver shared visions and outcomes.  Our design team also interacts with our property team and planning team to ensure that concepts are pragmatic, commercially robust and capable of being delivered.
