About us

UHL is a research laboratory that uses science-based and human-focused methods to understand and dissect the complex planning of housing, urban spaces, and cities. Our approach is to investigate the intertwined relationships between spatial layouts and the range of social, economic and environmental phenomena. We invest in projects that elevate local urban planners and architects, with the support of public and private sector clients.

Our approach

We offer to strengthen the urban, housing and built environment of existing and prospect projects by providing in-depth analysis


Revealing unseen opportunities: using geoprocessing and spatial analysis techniques, we identify the aspects found in sites or buildings that influence human behavior.


Measuring the prospect of success: applying advanced research methods to predict the effects and outcomes of the proposed design and planning strategies.


Facilitating communication: unifying visions of field experts and engaging the public through communicating the findings in a simple and cross-professional design language.
