5th Studio's design approach allies conceptual clarity with practical 'making' skills – and is underpinned by a series of principles which inform the way we design and deliver projects.

5th Studio are able to think, design and organise at a strategic scale - operating across infrastructure, engineering, conservation, ecology and planning. Our work at this extra-large scale - across projects which range from the re-thinking postindustrial landscapes to the strategic planning of future change within historic cities - aims to create strong places by combining visceral and analytical responses to their particular topographies.

Landscape / Urbanism

...their creative analysis of space, and understanding of place, has exceeded expectations... Their outputs are proven to be both visually appealing, and capable of bringing abstract spatial concepts and relationships ‘to life’ for analysts and decision-makers. 5th Studio’s work has been vital in securing the confidence of senior stakeholders and in communicating analyses and conclusions to a generalist audience.
