Grayspace is a multi-faceted consultancy service that looks to provide evidence based design solutions. We balance the oftenconflicting needs of clients, local authorities and other key stakeholders by presenting innovating design solutions founded on established research and evidence. The Grayspace story started in 2012 as a small group of like-minded, multi-disciplinary designers who wanted to develop a new methodology to provide innovative, social and ethical responses within the built environment. We saw a lack of qualitative and quantitative evidence being used in the development processes and endeavored to bridge this gap by developing a collaborative business model that focused on providing market driven solutions for our clients with buy-in from our stakeholders.

At Grayspace, we provide integrated expertise in architecture, landscape design, urban design and town planning. Combined with a highly collaborative approach we provide purposeful solutions specific to each project that make the built environment safer, cheaper, and more human centered. At Grayspace we believe well researched evidence can lead to improved economic, social, environmental and cultural outcomes.
