Urban design and healthy community planning are central to BNIM’s core purpose of delivering beautiful, integrated living environments that inspire change and enhance the human condition. These interrelated issues have far-ranging effects including increasing walkability and bikeability, ensuring residents have access to critical services and healthy food options, and promoting diverse, mixed-income neighborhoods. BNIM explores design solutions as part of a holistic planning process that intersects people, planet, and place. The goal is to make plans at micro and macro levels that can be tangibly understood and readily materialized through programs, policies, and construction.
