Lindsay Humblet

As Planit’s head of design, Lindsay leads the design process throughout our commissions from inception through to completion on site. He plays a role in all design-related projects that come into the office and is especially adept at working closely with artists and architectural partners – from small studios to Stirling Prize winners.

He has considerable experience of providing this role with a proven track record of delivering high quality public realm schemes on site. He led the design teams on both our Leopold Square project in Sheffield and St John’s Square in the heart of Blackpool, which proved a catalyst for the towns regeneration. His recent work includes a number of benchmark schemes for streets and spaces including the multi award winning Poynton scheme in Cheshire, Fishergate in Preston and is currently overseeing Tony Wilson Place at First Street, Manchester.

He is currently focusing on major strategic regeneration projects throughout the UK, with a specific focus on sustainable, public realm-led masterplanning.
