collaboration While we dominate a number of key markets across the globe, we believe true design magic comes when we cross-pollinate ideas and approaches across our core business sectors and services.
our process Holistic, multi-discipline collaboration that incorporates urban design, architecture, interiors, branding and landscape architecture to create places of distinction.
placemaking RTKL creates environments that celebrate the human condition – places where people feel comfortable, safe, part of a larger community. This takes an understanding of the broader issues of context, scale and the public realm as much as an emphasis on detail and quality.
convergence: mxd A single-use sensibility is no longer sustainable. Today’s major developments depend on a mixture of uses, an urban sensibility and a collaboration among multiple stakeholders. Stacked components, mass transit and an enhanced public realm are the hallmarks of the next generation of large-scale development.
living above the shop Shifting demographics and an emphasis on life-style are altering the residential landscape. Today’s new communities rely on “sustainable planning” to create a proximity of uses and an urban density in a suburban or edge-city location.
escape Rebounding from an economic slump, hotels worldwide are emphasizing the importance of a complete and comprehensive guest experience. Whether we design for the executive or the tourist, we now offer a comprehensive team of planners, architects, interior architects and graphic designers.
wellness A more demanding and sophisticated consumer is driving new changes in the design and delivery of health care and health-related environments. Hospitals resemble hotels while centers of excellence are demanding innovative thinking in terms of operations and technology.
managing brands Our knowledge of brand helps our clients define their mission and values. Our understanding of consumer trends, the value of sponsorship and the elusive science of psychographics has placed us head and shoulders above our competition in translating those values – their brand – into the built environment.
technology Technology moves faster than the speed of business, and RTKL has been at the absolute forefront of combining specialized services with world class design to create the next wave of technology-enhanced environments. Special Systems. Equipment Planning. Applied Tech.
the speed of business Whether designing a new headquarters on the skyline or developing a workspace that expresses mission as much as it attracts and retains talent, RTKL has assembled an impressive workplace portfolio
how we shop The nature of retail has changed dramatically over the last five years, and RTKL has led the charge in creating vibrant commercial environments that understand retail’s relationship with brand, entertainment, technology and lifestyle.
culture as catalyst RTKL believes in preserving the historic and cultural legacies of all communities along with creating the iconic images of the present. These we see as opportunities to create great architecture as well as spark urban regeneration and foster a deeper sense of civic pride.
transit-oriented development Today’s sustainable, thriving communities rely on a mixture of uses as well as an understanding of mass transit, which should be an integral element of any comprehensive urban plan. By creating economic opportunities and commercial nodes, TOD makes our cities more livable.
sport-anchored districts Critical to the success of stadia and arenas today is the development of an intense, intimate fan environment complete with pre- and post-game activities. These developments feature new sources of revenue for operators and opportunities for cities to create an iconic image.
