When a single project brings together all our disciplines, we’re able to create truly future-forward developments. Here are some examples:  

Healthy New Towns

In partnership with the National Health Society in England, we’re exploring the relationship between design and well-being to redefine what it means to be a “healthy town”. Through a better understanding of how every day interactions in the home, on the streets, and between neighbourhoods are impacting our physical and mental states, we’re discovering new ways to embed well-being into the fabric of a community.

Innovation Districts

We believe vibrant places are created when ideas are forced to collide; well-planned, technology-driven designs that encourage risk-taking and foster the entrepreneurial spirit. From start-ups to schools, hospitals to residences, we’re pulling people together so they can push us all forward.

Landmark Events

Live experiences can unite a city and its people like nothing else. IBI Group is no stranger to the design and execution of landmark events – from grassroots movements to cultural events and even the Olympics. We understand all the hidden details that make it easier for people – and entire communities – to make the most of these moments.

Ageless Living

It’s no longer necessary to assume you’ll live in one place and retire in another. We’re developing new senior environments in the least expected spot: the same places they already call home. It’s happening through timeless design with an emphasis on comfort and access — leading to healthier, longer-lasting homes and communities.
