Mixed use developments combine different uses that have differing spatial requirements as well as differing services required, combining spaces where people live and work.
As we live in more densely populated settlements, the utilisation of mixed use developments allows for living conditions that contain a diversity of uses and elements. These can be in the form of apartments with retail units below or in spread out complexes with various amenities available.
At FmK we have worked on various mixed use schemes, their design and technical requirements and the need for the two types of developments to co-exist in the same location and space. We use various techniques in our master planning of these schemes such as 3D mass modelling and rendering of proposed views in order to feel if the project is working prior to detailed design and construction.
At FMK we strive to bring quality design into these developments to facilitate space planning and aesthetics as well as maintaining a functional mode.
