“They absolutely loved it! All councillors singing its praises and asking me to congratulate all those involved. We have really very much enjoyed feeling part of a collaborative process in developing the New Cross Area Framework, and feel our contribution as clients and project managers has been valued and has meaningfully informed the final document. We hope to replicate this process in future projects.”

Mathieu Proctor, Principal Urban Design Officer, London Borough of Lewisham

NEW CROSS AREA FRAMEWORK / Jointly commissioned by the London Borough of Lewisham, the Greater London Authority and Transport for London, this framework aims to establish the key strategies to guide change associated with the Bakerloo line extension and development towards what the Mayor of London has termed ‘good growth’.
NEW CROSS HIGH STREET / A continuation of our study for New Cross Gate which further investigates the integration of a new Bakerloo line station into the high street, exploring how this diverse high street can be strengthened to support economic recovery and to promote active and sustainable travel modes.

We support local authorities in developing local plans and area strategies, supporting a coherent and coordinated approach to development and growth.

We bring our diverse experiences spanning the fields of architecture, urbanism and landscape to bear on developing strategic approaches to our communities. Our work is anchored by the experience of working and thinking across this spectrum of scales, disciplines and projects. We are skilled at thinking strategically while also maintaining a meticulous attention to detail.

We work closely with stakeholders to understand the challenges and opportunities of our study areas, this has included the integration of major city-scale strategic projects such as the Bakerloo line extension at New Cross Gate.

EAST LONDON GREEN GRID / We supported the production of the East London Green Grid and the subsequent All London Green Grid, producing the detailed area studies for the Lea Valley and Wandle Valley for the Mayor of London.

“...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.”

The National Infrastructure Commission describing our work

OXFORD – MILTON KEYNES – CAMBRIDGE ARC / This study, commissioned by the National Infrastructure Commission, explored the built environment of the Oxford-Milton Keynes-Cambridge Arc, making recommendations for infrastructure-led future housing provision.
FUTURE VISIONS – ENGLAND’S ECONOMIC HEARTLAND / This study, commissioned by a coalition of councils across the Oxford-Milton Keynes-Cambridge Arc, explore ways in which the use of technology and transport infrastructure can be used to better connect existing communities and enable new, sustainable development.

We are experienced at developing and supporting strategic thinking at regional and national scales. Tackling the issues of movement, logistics, economic and population growth. We think across scales, bringing our experience of project delivery and research to bear on these large scale challenges.

Our work in the Oxford-Milton Keynes-Cambridge Arc has developed an evidence base to support investment in infrastructure and to shape built-environment policy.

We have also supported the sub‑national transport body England’s Economic Heartland with studies exploring the impacts of investments in major transport projects and the establishment of a first-mile last-mile strategy.

We regularly produce best practice guidance documents, distilling our extensive design experience into design guides describing best-practice approaches to the delivery of buildings and public realm.

The success of these documents is rooted in our collaborative approach to shaping our cities. We have a strong track record of engaging with stakeholders and local communities to ensure proposals are deliverable, desirable and to foster a sense of ownership.

We have recently produced design guidance for both the Lea River Park and the Royal Docks, where our documents will support the development of the Royal Docks public realm over the next decade.

ROYAL DOCKS PUBLIC REALM FRAMEWORK AND DESIGN GUIDES / 5th Studio have supported the GLA's Royal Docks Team and LB Newham through the production of a suite of documents that identify the future vision and methods for delivering an attractive and coherent public realm.

Our hands-on approach to tackling the challenges of London’s post-covid recovery are delivering meaningful benefit and change.

We have been working closely with local authorities to support the recovery of our towns and cities. Notably we worked closely with Westminster City Council in 2020 to ensure that following the first covid lock down businesses could reopen under the al fresco dining scheme.

Our team was on the ground mapping the challenges and opportunities across the borough, developing an in-depth knowledge of this area’s high streets, cultural and economic centres which has supported the subsequent production of the Covent Garden Public Realm Framework.

COVENT GARDEN PUBLIC REALM FRAMEWORK / The post-covid al fresco dining highway measures has demonstrated an ability to carefully expand the public realm.
