Environment and Sustainability

Sustainability is embedded in the way we design buildings- from optimising the orientation to incorporative innovative sustainability measures that unite communities through design. We consider the whole life of the building – whether new or retrofit – proposing buildings that ‘touch the ground lightly’ and are cost effective. Working alongside our in-house environmental engineer, we consider all aspects of future sustainability – economic, environmental and social – proposing solutions that are tailored to that specific challenges of the context and client.
We are dedicated to pursuing environmental strategies that move beyond reducing water and energy consumption and cutting carbon emissions but propose building’s that are positive generators, actively producing energy, food and cleaning water, and changing people’s lives for the better.
