Urbanisma Connotes Urbanism…
THE TRANFORMATIC SOCIO-ENVIRONMENTAL ORGANISM , WHICH GAVE BIRTH TO THE EARLIEST VESTIGES OF THE URBAN HABITAT. URBANISM IS A PHENOMENA THAT IS THE SOLE AGENT OF CHANGE TRANSFORMING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT INTO WHAT WE NOW CALL TOWNS AND CITIES –WITHIN WHICH ARE PLACES WHERE MOST OF US BELONG TO AND LIVE, WORK AND PLAY.
POSITIONING OURSELVES AS DESIGN AGENTS OF THE BUILT-ENVIRONMENT WITHIN THE URBAN ECOSYSTEM, WE LIKE TO POSITION OURSELVES AS IDEA GENERATORS PROVIDING SOLUTIONS TO THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT – IN BOTH THE DESIGN OF ELEMENTS IN THE URBAN LANDSCAPE WHICH WE IDENTIFY AS BUILDINGS AND PLACES AS WELL AS THE SPACES THAT SURROUNDS US BOTH OUTDOOR AND INDOOR. THESE PLACES AND SPACES EFFECTIVELY SHAPE OUR LIVES BOTH PHYSIOLOGICALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY".
Urbanisma was founded in 1988 as an architectural practice by prominent Malaysian architect, Hafiz Hashim, who actively leads the organisation as the Executive Chairman/President.
Since its establishment, the firm has succesfully transcended the boundaries of architecture into what we would like to refer to as the 'Art and Science of creating Places and Spaces'.
Solutions for the built-environment are getting evermore challenging and complex. Design solutions have to cut across multi-discipline professions. Urbanisma’s approach to design therefore pays attention to the fact that the initial steps to any design has to wholesome and holistic in thinking, integrating the multi-faceted resolve of determinants of a particular project.
