Human City offers a range of services, covering six broad capabilities: futures thinking, user research, experience design, design activation, property strategy and impact advisory.

Specialising in the financial and social aspects of real estate, we focus on four main areas:


Design futures and strategy

Recent disruption means there’s an urgent need for you to create spaces and experiences that meet changing customer demands and consumer preferences.


Innovation and growth

Partner with us to increase your value proposition, capture new market opportunities and maximise your positive effects on people and the planet.


Social value and impact

By providing innately designed solutions in areas where social disadvantage and economic inequality are on the rise, you can create places where people don't just survive, they thrive.


Tools and techniques

If you have in-house design and innovation capabilities and want a steer on how to take a more sustainable and socially responsible approach, our tools and training are for you.

We advise organisations seeking to deliver lasting social benefits through their property development and asset management strategy.


Investors and asset managers

We know the time has come for environmental, social and corporate governance to be an intrinsic consideration in real estate investment. So we help you achieve this by identifying the right partnerships and working closely with all your stakeholders, from occupiers and end-users to local businesses and communities.


Property developers

We know that local councils now expect you to add significant, measurable social value through each project you deliver. By helping you strengthen your relationships with anchor institutions, we pave the way to success for developers seeking to secure planning permission, reach new customers and build trust and reputation.


Architects and interior designers

As experts with a proven track record in community engagement, we’re here to help you embed social value into your designs and engagement strategies. We can help you create places that prioritise public benefit, and deliver adaptable, sustainable new spaces and experiences.
