Rowe Group Design Logo Positive

As Urban Designers, our job is to understand the complexities of existing and new urban environments, anticipate future challenges, investigate opportunities, and respond with sound and innovative design.

Project: Honeywood

As Urban Planners, we understand the most endearing places are those which have evolved to become destinations of choice – places which adapt and respond to the complexities of the urban environment and changing values of the community. Our Design Studio Team at Rowe Group aims to anticipate future challenges and community aspirations through the creation of places that promote and encourage strong community values.

We understand the commercial realities in this challenging economic environment and seek to respond with sound design outcomes that deliver the best possible results for our clients and the community. Whether it is a residential, rural, retail, commercial or industrial development, we channel our years of experience and innovative ideas into producing outstanding results.

Project: North Ellenbrook West

Our Approach

We offer significantly more than just a design and approvals service. Each project presents as an opportunity to make a positive contribution to our evolving urban landscape. Our goal is to assist our clients in establishing a vision for their project and work with them towards delivering the desired result along with its commercial, social and environmental outcomes. We endeavour to provide the best and most efficient land use solutions whilst recognising the importance of good community design.

We incorporate an inclusive and engaging approach to negotiating the statutory requirements of urban development. Our team has forged positive working relationships with key Government agencies and is well recognised for our ability to negotiate positive outcomes.

Our Design Team utilises a collaborative and iterative design process which clearly demonstrates the design intent to our clients and project stakeholders. We communicate our designs through a range of medium commencing with initial freehand concept drawings through to full three-dimensional models and animations to provide a conceptual yet realistic understanding of how the project will ‘live’ in the context of its existing surrounds.


We apply our skills and knowledge to some of the largest and most recognised projects in Western Australia. We have proven ourselves in the work we do by maintaining lasting relationships with our clients.

Our client base includes a broad range of private developers and government agencies with our projects ranging from large scale master planned communities and major activity centres to urban infill sites and compact urban spaces, rural-residential, subdivision, commercial and industrial projects.

Some of our projects include:

  • North Ellenbrook West District Structure Plan;
