Urban Design Studio

We offer inspired urban design services to both private and public clients. Our designers are adept at working on a variety of projects – from the detailed design of a small urban plaza or single-entry monument to the design of a comprehensive redevelopment master plan or district-wide form-based code. Creatively developing vibrant and healthy urban environments is at the core of what we do.

The Urban Design Studio (UDS) is a unique component of Michael Baker’s planning and architecture practices that focuses on the design of sustainable communities. UDS convenes our in-house expertise in urban design, environmental responsibility, mobility and community-based planning to deliver innovative and integrated solutions that build more livable communities.
