Seeing the Bigger Picture

Planning Services

It is obvious to us that they really care about the people we serve, and they make sure that the buildings they design reflect our shared mission of serving the community. I am pleased to highly recommend Kitchen & Associates – as great architects and planners, but especially as partners in the very important projects we do that continue to make positive differences in our community.

A Holistic Approach

Designing Successful Communities

Critical to the success of any development project is a comprehensive planning process which incorporates a holistic approach to the design of the new urban community. Our successful approach focuses not only on the existing and future infrastructure of the built environment, but also on the non-built environment—the spaces and places in between—and how they directly and indirectly relate to the overall planned development.

Transit-Oriented Development

K&A’s commitment to successful community planning and urban revitalization is exemplified in our multi-disciplinary approach to mixed-use transit-oriented development projects, and in particular, the design of the modern Transit Village, where new residential and commercial development takes full advantage of the existing municipal modes of transportation.

Designing Community

Planning begins with a consummate knowledge of the issues effecting a given community, its locality and context, and the needs and priorities of its resident population. The involvement and integration of all stakeholders—from the grass-roots to the institutional—is critical in helping to create a vibrant and successful mixed-use neighborhood.
