Who we are.
Arterial is a full-service, collaborative studio of landscape architects, planners, and designers passionate about creating great streets and public spaces. We are casual observers, people watchers, walkers, cyclists and ‘Complete Streets’ advocates. We believe that successful public space is achieved through thoughtful planning, cost effective design and community involvement. This responsible investment in our public infrastructure is essential to the sustainability of our cities, towns and communities.
David Lustberg founded Arterial to recognize the growing need to change the way we analyze, plan and design streets and public space. His diverse, 12-year career with local and international planning and design firms taught David that creating sustainable public space requires a collaborative, holistic design approach. It is through this approach that Arterial strives to create “High Performance Streets and Public Spaces” that seamlessly integrate:
- Arts & Culture,
- Health & the Environment
- Economic Vitality &
- Design Quality
What we do.
Our process is fresh and our services are intentionally simple and focused. Our propriety “Arterial Performance Analysis” and unique community engagement process allow us to make well informed decisions throughout all stages of the project. Throughout the design process, we keep a close eye on budget, implementation and long-term maintenance. Our process and services can be tailored to meet the unique needs of any project. We enjoy leading projects from inception through completion but are very comfortable “jumping in” at any stage to help out!
This is what we love to do.
