Design Guidelines

HKGi has extensive experience preparing design guidelines as a tool to help shape growth and development and implement master plans. Our approach to developing design guidelines is pragmatic and inclusive. We involve a wide range of stakeholders in the development process and collaborate with a variety of design professionals to communicate an urban design direction that is the right fit for the client and the project. Design guidelines are intended to create a commonly understood set of expectations for the character and quality of development in an area. Example design guideline projects include:
