Planning & Urban Design

Envisioning Our World

Great places begin with a vision. They are based on a community’s collective imagination of what it can be and what legacy this generation wants to leave for the next. We love the process of revealing this vision through conversation and design, then providing a framework to make the vision a reality.


Places for People

Whether a place is being planned for living, working, learning, or play, its success comes back to the people who will occupy it. At LHB, we shape our designs around the comfort and even the joy of those people—imagining their experience from the moment they consider coming to a place until they leave.


Plans that work

We plan vibrant, beautiful places, but we know that to be truly successful, they must also be functional. Because our planners also design places that get built, our master plans are based in the reality of what can be implemented, operated, and maintained.
