Madonna Locke is a talented Urban Designer, recognised for her ability to deliver inspired yet pragmatic solutions that are deliverable on the ground.

Madonna has more than 18 years’ experience working in Australia and the UK. She has shaped projects for both public and private sector clients – everything from greenfield communities to urban infill sites.

A passionate advocate for compact city design, Madonna looks to foster places that are accessible, community-focused and connected to their surrounds. Since joining Urbis in 2010, she has specialised in revitalisation master plans for urban and regional centres, built-form projects and project positioning for infill developments.

Her career highlights include preparing the groundbreaking Brisbane City Centre Master Plan 2014 – together with the Buildings that Breathe Design Guide – for Brisbane City Council. She was also involved in Destination Brisbane’s successful bid to redevelop Queen’s Wharf.

Cities are dynamic places, constantly shifting and responding to their changing surroundings. For me, working in this space is about both getting the basics right and finding excitement in the small things that make each city, and the spaces within it, unique.
