About Inhabit Place
Our public places are not static. They're complex and multi-layered, creating patterns of usage which evolve over time. Truly understanding how people use places contributes toward better design, and better quality of life.
Inhabit Place was created to help create better places, through understanding how our places are truly used. It allows the systemic, cost-effective and reliable collection and analysis of data through an easy use application of place auditing.
The application documents and reports observational data, through interactions with the space and its visitors to understand their experience. It enables smooth and standardised data collection that generates easy to read reports for wide dissemination and transparent accounting. Crucially, Inhabit Place creates these datasets from real, on the ground interaction and observation. The data collected contains a level of detail and intuitive understanding that digital and desktop services cannot match.
Inhabit Place data supports place stakeholders to make informed improvements to place that benefit the health, happiness and economic stability of our neighbourhoods.
Inhabit Place is firmly aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, focussed on target 11 (to 'make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable') with a special emphasis on achieving target 11.7 ('By 2030, provide universal access to safe, inclusive and accessible, green and public spaces, in particular for women and children, older persons and persons with disabilities.')
We strongly believe in creating places that are active, inclusive, safe and delightful for everyone.
Inhabit Place is for governments working with public funds, developers committed to design excellence and private businesses looking to create the best outcomes for their premises and community.
