Applied Research

Social Trends

We conduct original research, review and analyse existing evidence, and translate research into practical built environment applications.

Our research expertise covers the fields of environmental psychology, well-being, behaviour change, social and demographic trends, and evidence-based design. We employ quanitative and qualitiative methodologies, as well as techniques specific to the study of environmental behaviour, such as video-based behaviour mapping.

Our research clients include Grainger PLC, the UK’s largest listed residential property company; ADAM Urbanism; and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), a US government agency. Learn more about Tomorrow’s Home for an example of our research work.
