Our Manifesto

How many people are privileged enough to be able to walk around a city or community and say, “I helped bring this to life!”

How many people are privileged enough to be able to walk around a city or community and say, “I helped bring this to life!” Property owner, policy maker, developer or stakeholder– if you’re involved in creating places, you have the power to shape lives for the better for generations to come.

It’s a thought that’s equally awesome and overwhelming. If you build it, will they come? And for how long? Is it the right vision, for the right place? Will it be adaptable to future needs? Is it viable, and will it have lasting commercial value? Will the community, or planning framework, even let you build it in the first place?

element is here to bring it all together.

We understand the impacts of economics, technological disruption and global trends. We know how to future proof your project and navigate its completion within the minefield of legislative challenges and community buy in.

element offers statutory and strategic planning, stakeholder engagement, heritage element, urban design, place making and public art management. We navigate and bring complex projects to life by seamlessly blending creative and technical knowhow.

It’s the art and science of place.
