Achieving sustainable development, town centre revitalisation and meeting housing demand often requires building at medium to high densities. However, this type of development can create tension, with risks of overlooking to neighbouring homes or tall and bulky forms within historic settings. This interactive Masterclass will explore the key principles to delivering well-designed, higher density neighbourhoods that respond appropriately to context. It will feature presentations and case studies from practitioners who have delivered successful, higher density developments.


  • Understand the potential role of higher density development in towns and neighbourhoods
  • Explore principles for successful higher density development
  • Recognise best practice examples of sensitive, high density developments
