SUSTAINABILITY

Our commitment to sustainable design has been a core focus of our firm since its very beginnings.

We are passionately committed to designing schemes which minimise environmental impact and optimise energy efficiency. We believe that architects have an urgent duty to mitigate the effects of climate change by designing buildings which work harder and perform better.

The development and application of new materials and technologies are driven by the economic realities of each project, yet we consider sustainability and new building technology extremely important issues. We make intelligent use of the world’s limited natural resources, including those freely available as the sun’s warmth and light, natural breezes for ventilation and cooling, and the integral nature of landscaping and its influence on a site’s micro-climate.

We realise that projects require varying levels of sustainability and we work collaboratively with our clients and consultants to determine which features present the greatest value for money for each building. We promote sustainability in both our Practice and our buildings from the first conceptual sketches through to the completion of a project. This allows us to seamlessly integrate environmentally-conscious features and also to make fundamental decisions regarding sustainability early in the design process which saves both time and money.

Where we work, with stringent regulations governing natural ventilation, daylight, and energy consumption has long inspired us toward energy and environmental performance in our design process.
