Despite the fact that cities are becoming denser and denser, leading to increased competition for space and with house prices putting increased financial pressure on new buyers, there is still room for a wide range of design opportunities that update the definition of urban living.

Architects, developers and builders design houses around the principles of density, efficiency and flexibility to meet the needs of the city's inhabitants. They address physical, environmental, social and economic issues through creative solutions that promote the integration not only of new architectural work into an existing urban fabric, but also the integration of people into a community. The results can combine the benefits of city life with the privacy of suburban living.
