In keeping with topography and context, it is through Urban Design that public spaces, such as squares, parks, greens and plazas, and the streets, paths and greenways that connect them are laid out, together forming the armature that is the basis of pedestrian, mixed use and compact neighbourhoods and the communities that then establish themselves there.

The design of a 75 acre site on a bluff, overlooking the town of Westport and Upper Rideau Lake beyond.

The design for a mid to high density neighbourhood centre integrated into the surrounding neighbourhood, prepared to counter a developer driven design for a regional retail centre to be built in a neighbourhood retail plaza
The design emphasizes integration into the site, by connecting to the existing residential fabric, linking to the adjacent recreational lands through greenbelts through the property, and minimizing visual impact along the ridge of Beaver Valley by stepping the development back and down to the west of the ridge.
The re-design of a 75 acre sloped site, overlooking Lake Huron. The new TND design supersedes an earlier proposal from 2003 for 30 large lot custom home sites. The new design adheres to the smart growth principles being adopted in Ontario, and takes full advantage of a dynamic site, while offering the adjoining developments and the town of Penetanguishene a series of public spaces, in the form of squares, parks and pathways.
A schematic design on a 55 acre site overlooking Penetang Bay with emphasis placed on connecting to the surrounding residential fabric through roadways, paths and view corridors, and providing the whole community a range of public spaces as destinations in the form of parks, parkettes, squares, plazas and lookouts.
