Working with multiple stakeholders, we connect the dots between partners and disciplines to solve complex business and brand challenges with the ambition to create destinations that are remarkable in every way.
Placemaking and destination brands help colour cities, elevate regions and create a sense of place. But to craft benchmark brands that become iconic destinations, creative partners need to understand how destinations are developed and how different components – like districts, infrastructure, and destination anchors – interconnect to feed into a master-planned vision.
At Brash, we work on new, developing and regenerating cities and regions from the early ideation stage. Our experience in placemaking and destination branding means we understand how each piece makes up the whole; and how the order in which things are implemented has a knock-on effect to a project’s success. A big part of our difference is knowing how to articulate the overall vision of a city or region masterplan into the individual placemaking and destination brands.
Our in-depth knowledge allows us to solve complex branding challenges, making us a unique and valuable asset to any team and big-vision project.
Experienced with working with everyone – from governments, financiers and masterplanners to developers, architects and project managers – we’re expert at connecting multiple stakeholders, partners and disciplines.

Real estate is a crucial component to placemaking and destination branding. We create ambitious brands for luxury residential offerings that help put a city or region on the map, supporting developers on residential property projects. Collaborating with wider stakeholders we also work with architects, construction teams and interior designers from ideation and pre-planning phases right through to on-site implementation.
Working with clients who push the boundaries we work on projects at the cutting edge of emerging trends such as branded residences. First developed with the Armani Residences at the Burj Khalifa, the idea was simple – partner with an established brand to deliver the experience of a hotel with the comforts of home, increasing the desirability and salability of residences while creating an already recognised sense of place within a destination. Now a global trend, we continue to work on branded residences with Omniyat and The Dorchester Collection.

As crucial destination anchors in a city or region, hospitality and mixed-use establishments help drive economies and create a sense of place where people want to be. From hotels, retailers and entertainment to leisure, and food and beverage offerings, each component attracts investment and creates employment whilst elevating people’s experience of a place.
At Brash, we’ve worked with stakeholders at every level on projects of all shapes and sizes. We’ve created brands for luxury hotels and resorts, retail destinations in the UAE and India, envisioned large-scale regional developments – Marina Di Ventimiglia on the Italian Riviera and Amaala, the first of Saudi’s 2030 Giga projects and helped transform new cities into world-class destinations.

The infrastructure of a city or region creates the framework for destination and placemaking brands to sit within. This encompasses projects that span everything from government and municipalities to businesses, banks, airports, utilities and transport.
A key component to a city’s infrastructure is the districts where these components sit. Each one contributes to the overall masterplan of a place. For example, downtown areas are the financial components within a city whose role is to create a 24-hour living space, while central business districts are only used on weekdays during office hours, making them quiet in the evenings and at weekends and why retail spines often connect residential and financial districts, and hotels are located at the intersections to attract audiences to each area.
With a thorough understanding of the role of infrastructure within masterplanning, placemaking and destination branding, we partner with governments and municipalities on civic, public and private projects.
