Landscape Architect and Urban Designer
The name of P2 comes from People & Places. Priority of P2 is that People and Living Places, with its team of urban designers, city regional planners, architects and landscapers, the P2 Design Studio was established in order to provide a fresh perspective on existing city and landscaping design with the belief that no location holds any meaning on its own and that such locations comprise a whole together with their surroundings, the city in which they are located, their users and the chain of events that have given rise to them and that viable cities and livable locations may only be possible with the noted disciplines working in unison.
P2, whose objective is to provide permanent solutions, taking both traditional and modern design approaches into account with due regard for the environment through customized, innovative, functional, creative, meaningful, compatible, aesthetic, sustainable decisions that are, more importantly, aimed at people, provides urban design, architectural design, landscaping and consultancy services at various scales ranging from the wider city scale to a more detailed level.
