Since 2008 Open-City has been supporting and promoting sustainable cities through a variety of initiatives. We champion the importance of ‘designing in’ sustainability, not just for individual buildings but also across neighbourhoods, communities and the wider city.
This theme has run through all our work over the past six years, including:
Sustainability is now becoming a key part of people's thinking
- for refurb as well as new build. Initiatives such as Open-City's
Green Sky Thinking can only but help to highlight leadership and
vision for the green agenda."

"As a firm that is passionate about real estate, we at Henderson
believe that Open-City fills an important role in increasing awareness
of the architecture, buildings, urban planning and community spaces
that surround us. Most importantly, they understand and endorse the
need for a collaborative and cross-disciplinary approach in order
to achieve a sustainable future for the cities in which we live and
