Hynes Developments: The Social developer

We ask the question "what makes a community work"? Our sense of community can be enhanced by incentives or suppressed by barriers presented to us through the built and natural spaces that surround us. Our exploration of the human urban experience is led by a desire to understand the full spectrum of social consequences of where and how we live.

Our approach focuses first and foremost on the social and environmental impact of our developments. We strongly believe that as both individuals and groups our behaviour is greatly influenced by our surrounding physical environment. We seek to understand the social consequences of built form, functional organization and patterns of use, ownership and governance.
