We are a citymaking design practice.

Bates Smart’s combined expertise and integrated methodology allow us to lead complex projects across a diverse portfolio of sectors and industries, positively impacting the ways in which people live, learn, work and heal.

We understand the social, cultural, sustainability and economic forces currently shaping communities and their impact on the built environment. Our approach is not simply about making big gestures. We nurture and develop every size of project and all its elements, until the details complement and enhance the whole.

Our clients are the partners that make the work we do possible. We understand their commercial objectives and the risks that must be balanced to bring their projects to fruition successfully.
